Bond was set at $100,000 each Tuesday for two Pine Bluff men who were arrested Monday for their involvement in a July 8 shooting incident outside of a residence in the 3200 block of Daffodil Street.
Pine Bluff Police Department Detective William Freeman said in a probable cause affidavit that Jeramy Chambers, 21, and Allawiches Austin, 22, were arrested after an investigation into the shooting incident by the PBPD revealed that they and several other men began firing handguns in a man’s direction as he attempted to get into his cousin’s car.
Freeman said that officers were initially dispatched to Daffodil Street July 8 in response to a report of gunshots in the area and that the officers observed shell casings both on the street and in the yard of a residence. Freeman said that witnesses told officers that they saw several black males pointing guns and running from each other and that several of the residents’ vehicles and homes had sustained gunshot damage.
Freeman said that officers interviewed an adult male victim July 12 who allegedly said that he came under fire from several men while he was trying to get into his cousin’s car .
On Tuesday, Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgeforth set the bond amounts for Chambers and Austin after ruling that prosecutors had probable cause to charge Chambers with commission of a terroristic act and aggravated assault and to charge Austin with commission of a terroristic act, aggravated assault and felon in possession of a firearm.
Austin’s bond was designated as cash only.
Both Chambers and Austin asked for time to find attorneys and they were told to report back to court Aug. 23.
