– HPD Press Release –
On Monday, June 20th of 2022, Officers responded to 1105 Victory Street (South Henderson Ball Park), in reference to a “Fight with weapons.” Initial officers arriving encountered a large crowd and multiple shots being fired.
One subject was observed attempting to charge his weapon (manipulate the slide), and then ran to a vehicle with the firearm in hand, after ignoring orders to drop his weapon. Three firearms in total were recovered from this vehicle. The driver, Jamaal Johnson (age 22), was found in possession of a concealed Glock 17 pistol, an American Tactical AR-15 was located in the front passenger area in plain view, and a 9mm Taurus pistol was recovered from a concealed location where the initial person, Ajamiar Robinson-Clack (age 21), was seated in the rear of the car.
While dealing with the large crowd and the four detained individuals, Officers were dispatched to Maria Parham Health in reference to a report of two individuals with “gunshot wounds.” When Officers arrived, they located Kavon Horton (age 26) and Samijai Haythe (18). It was
found that neither victim had been shot, but had received injuries from an assault that occurred at 1105 Victory Street (South Henderson Ball Park).
While at Maria Parham Health, Officers were notified about a large group of individuals outside the emergency department. These individuals were also involved in the same incident and had also been seen with firearms. A vehicle of interest was approached and a Glock 19 pistol, a Taurus PT1911 pistol, and a Palmetto State Armory PA15 Rifle were recovered.
The Glock 19 pistol was found on the person of a 17-year-old Juvenile, and was found to be modified to fire full-auto. The juvenile was released to Juvenile Justice after secured custody orders were filed for Possession of a Weapon of Mass Destruction and Possession of a Machine Gun.
This matter is still under investigation and possible further charges are pending its outcome. This would include the victims who sought medical treatment.
Jamal Johnson, Ajamiar Robinson-Clack and Isrrael Barreto Aguilar were charged with Carrying a Concealed Weapon.
