ST THOMAS, Jamaica - A 38-year-old St Thomas man has been charged with wounding with intent, possession of a prohibited weapon and unauthorised possession of ammunition following an incident in his community on Friday, January 27.

Charged is Damion McKoy, otherwise called ‘Prezi’, a farmer of Bamboo Corner, Duckensfield in the parish.

Reports from the Golden Grove Police are that about 10:30 pm, McKoy and a man had an argument. McKoy left, returned with a handgun and pointed it at the man. A tussle ensued.

McKoy allegedly opened gunfire, hitting the man in his leg before fleeing the scene. The police were alerted and an investigation launched.

McKoy was later apprehended and subsequently charged after a question-and-answer session in the presence of his lawyer.

His court date is being finalised.
