A police mobile unit chased a group of men in a maroon Astro van at high speed within the city on Friday afternoon, March 28th, following a shooting on Mahogany Street. The sequence of events have led to the arrest and charge of 22-year-old Marquin Drury.    

According to police report, at around 1:30 p.m. on Friday, officers of the Gang Suppression Unit intercepted a maroon van which was heading from the Complex area on Mahogany Street where someone had just shot at Joshua Lewis. The officers fired shots at the vehicle and when it came to a stop one man had already jumped out and another was seen fleeing the vehicle. Inside the vehicle was the driver, identified as Drury. By the time officers caught up with the van, Drury had already called for his attorney, Bryan Neal. Neal was at the alleged scene where police searched the vehicle and nothing incriminating was found. Drury was detained by police.

On Monday, in the presence of his attorney, Drury was arraigned on two indictable offenses. He appeared before Chief Magistrate Anne Marie Smith where he was charged with one count of use of deadly means of harm and one count of grievous harm upon Joshua Lewis. No plea was taken from Drury and he was remanded to prison until his next court appearance on May 29th.
