A man charged in connection with a shooting last week in Maysville has had his case handed over to a grand jury.

The ruling came Wednesday during a preliminary hearing before Judge Jeffrey Schumacher in Mason County District Court.

Camron C. Gibbs, 19, of Maysville, is charged with first-degree burglary for his alleged involvement in the early morning incident at an apartment on Vine Street.

According to Maysville Detective Chris Conley, officers were called to an apartment on Vine Street at 2:19 a.m., June 15 in response to a report that a man had been shot in the chest. Upon arrival, officers discovered two men, had been shot — one in the chest and the other in both hands, Conley said.

Conley testified during the hearing that two males had entered the apartment, Gibbs and another identified as Darion Myrick, caused a struggle and shot Jacob Kiskaden, who lived in the apartment.

A woman who lived in the home testified that two men were in her bedroom when she awoke and she was unclear about the gunfire than followed because of fighting and confusion. Both men had a firearm and neither had been invited, she testified.

Also at home at the time of the incident was a 6-month-old child and a 16-year-old male.

Kiskaden, 19, suffered a gunshot wound to the chest. He was being treated at an undisclosed hospital and underwent surgery for his injury, according to Maysville Assistant Police Chief Jared Muse.

Muse said handguns were the arms involved in the shooting.

Gibbs, 19, of Maysville, was treated for gunshot wounds to the hands and released from UK Medical Center. He was later arrested and lodged in the Mason County Detention Center on a charge of first-degree burglary and two counts of contempt of court.

He is still being held on a $10,000 bond and, according to information from JailTracker, additional charges have been added including first-degree assault and wanton endangerment.
