Jamaican man allegedly fires gun to stop lover from leaving him
The Westmoreland police in Jamaica have charged 34-year-old Shane Reid, otherwise called ‘Ricky’, a welder of Carawina in the Petersfield area of the parish, with assault at common law and illegal possession of firearm and illegal possession of ammunition.
Reid was booked on Monday, July 13.
The charges stem from an incident that occurred on February 11 at about 9 pm.
Reid and his partner were reportedly involved in a domestic dispute then, during which he allegedly pointed a gun at her after the woman threatened to end their relationship.
He reportedly fired several shots in the air in a bid to dissuade the woman from ending the relationship.
A report was made to the police and Reid was subsequently arrested and charged after a thorough investigation of the allegations.
A date for his appearance in court is being finalised by the police.
