“They were in a dispute over the children, and Gaskin stepped in to intervene,” Kimble said.

Gaskin shot at Brown in defense, but Brown was not injured, Kimble said. Gaskin was taken to River Region Medical Center where he was treated for his injuries, Kimble said.

Brown was held this morning in the Warren County Jail lieu of $50,000 bail.


Bail set in separate shootings

Bail was set Monday for two teens accused of separate shootings over the weekend in Vicksburg.

Bail was set at $300,000 for De’Vonte Gary, 17, 53 Old Gibson Road who was arrested at about 12:10 a.m. Monday and charged with two counts of aggravated assault after shooting two men in an apartment on Kings Drive, according to Warren County Jail Records.

The victims, a 27-year old and a 28-year old were taken to River Region Medical Center, and at least one of them was later transferred to University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson. Police had said both men were taken to UMMC, but a relative on Monday said one of the men remained in River Region Medical Center.

Their conditions were unavailable this morning.

Bail was set at $95,000 for D’Vonte King, 17, whose address was not available. King was arrested at about 10:30 p.m. Friday and charged with possession of a gun by a minor and shooting into an occupied vehicle.

King posted bail Monday and was released, according to jail records.
