A mother and her daughter filmed the argument that led to a minister’s security driver allegedly shooting at a Scotsman and they were approached shortly after the incident by someone who asked to see the footage.

Sources said the footage is not very clear but shots can be heard.

Based on the women’s testimony, inquiring Magistrate Natasha Galea Sciberras ordered that a man be questioned on suspicion that he may have been trying to retrieve the footage and tamper with evidence.

The witnesses, however, were not able to make a positive identification of this person from a line-up of men and picked out two individuals.

The women, who were located thanks to a tip-off, were interviewed as part of the magisterial inquiry on Wednesday - a week since the incident in which Home Affairs Ministry driver Paul Sheehan, 40, allegedly fired two shots at 30-year-old Stephen Morrison Smith’s Vauxhall Insignia, which had hit the ministerial car.
