Sarasota cops questioned one of Shawn Tyson's friends, Ryhain Smith, 17, four times and then charged him with perjury and accessory after the fact, saying he lied to them. Ryhain Smith and Joshua Bane told police they retrieved the .22 caliber revolver used in the murder of James Cooper, 25, and James Kouzaris, 24 that had been hidden at Shawn Tyson's direction under the house of Marvin Gaines and scratched off the serial number with a screwdriver, court records show, Bane later sold it for $50.
Shawn Tyson's gun was a .22LR caliber Smith and Wesson 317 AirLite 8 shot Silver Revolver with black hand grips, see photo above, this is a $500.00 gun at retail, Tysons' pals sold it for $50.00. If you, or anyone you know in Sarasota purchased a gun that looks like the one above in April 2011, you've got two bodies on it and you DO NOT want to keep it. The smart move would be to drop it off at the cop house or contact me, no questions asked, and I will pick it up and turn it over to the cops.
When Ryhain Smith, DOB 5/18/1994, was quizzed by lawyers at a deposition about the gun and incriminating statements Shawn Tyson made after the shooting, Ryhain Smith recanted. He denied hearing the statements and denied knowledge of the gun, even after lawyers showed him a videotape of his statement. Ryhain Smith was arrested that day, 12/07/2011, see booking information CLICK HERE.
No Snitchin In the Newtown Hood, 'NO SNITCHING DA RULE', Nobody Knows Nuttin in Newtown especially Ryhain Smith.
Ryhain Smith was able to "get bond" with his new lawyer Liane McCurry and is under ELECTRONIC MONITORING, he is under house arrest at his great grandmother's house with no phone calls to anyone and no visitors, good luck with that, see Court documents CLICK HERE.
Ryhain Smith was served a SUBPOENA on 3/19/2012 to be on Standby to testify at Shawn Tyson's trial during the weeks of March 19th and March 26th.

I find it very interesting that Ryhain Smith and Joshua Bane took the time to scratch off the serial number with a screwdriver, does the serial number of the .22 caliber revolver link to a burglary or someone else? Most all guns obtained in the Newtown hood have a history, they were either stolen in a burglary or are purchased from drug dealers.
