The Maysville Police Department hopes the public can help locate a fugitive wanted on assault and burglary charges.
According to information from MPD, Darion Myrick, 19, is wanted in connection with an incident which occurred on Vine Street in Maysville on June 15.
Myrick is described as a male, about 5-feet, 11-inches tall, weighing 190 pounds. Officials said he should be considered to be armed and dangerous.
Myrick was allegedly involved in a shooting at a Vine Street apartment, according to Assistant Police Chief Jared Muse, where officers responded 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.
One of the victims, Jacob Kiskaden, who lived in the apartment, was shot in the chest. He was being treated at an undisclosed hospital and underwent surgery for his injury, Muse said.
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.
Camron C. Gibbs, 19, of Maysville, is charged with first-degree burglary for his alleged involvement in the early morning incident at the apartment. He suffered gunshot wounds to the hands and was treated at UK Medical Center and later released. During an appearance in Mason District Court Wednesday, his case was handed over to a Mason County grand jury.
Gibbs remains 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.
Muse said Myrick has had several opportunities to talk with investigators.
An arrest warrant has been issued for Myrick who could be hiding out in the Aberdeen, Ohio, area, and returning to Maysville on occasion, Muse said,
“He’s very well aware we are looking for him,” Muse said.
Anyone with information about Myrick’s location should call the Maysville Police Department at 606-564-9411.
