Rico Gordon was gunned down at the St Paul's Carnival Credit: Avon and Somerset Police

It's been described as like a scene from the wild west. Two gangs firing guns at each other after a row in a bar. The shoot out in the early hours of the morning following the St Paul's Carnival left a 21 year old man dead. Two men are standing trial at Bristol Crown Court for Rico Gordon's murder.

Shakah Anderson and Rickel Adams deny the charge. Today the jury is being shown CCTV footage of the men's movements in the lead up to the shooting. More than 100 seperate clips.

Tomorrow they will visit the scene of the shooting close to the Coach House pub in Stapleton Road, in the Easton district of Bristol. The trial is expected to last between five and six weeks.

Artistic Co-Ordinator resigns over future of St Paul's carnival in Bristol

The carnival, due to be held in July, is one of the country's biggest celebrations of Afro-Caribbean culture. But a community group objects to the way it is being run and that the main events will now be in Portland Square, outside St Paul's itself.

Artistic co-ordinator Julz Davies says he's stepping down because he says local people have not been kept informed.
