A Monticello man, arrested last week in connection with the Friday night shooting that wounded two women and two men, has been released on a $15,000 bond.
Tyvion Deshon Shaw, 23, is alleged to have fired 10 to 12 gunshots outside his home on Hillcrest Street in Monticello where a group of people had gathered, according to Monticello Police Chief Jason Akers.
Demarcus Veasey, Krissy Swift, Markiesha Walton and Zavier Herron were struck by the gunfire, but it appears that Veasey was the only intended target, according to 10th Judicial District Prosecutor Thomas Deen. “Although Shaw only intended to shoot one, he will be charged with a count of first-degree battery for each,” Deen said.
The shooting, which occurred shortly after 10 p.m., stemmed from a domestic dispute that escalated between Shaw and his wife, Akers said.
Shaw’s wife was not wounded, according to Deen.
Akers said Shaw turned himself in to authorities after the shooting.
At Shaw’s first appearance hearing on Monday, Circuit Judge Bynum Gibson set Shaw’s bond at $15,000. Shaw was in the military, has a good job, strong community ties and no prior criminal history. Shaw was released from jail Tuesday evening.
