Twenty-nine-year-old construction worker Esron Richardson, otherwise called ‘Gully’ and ‘Flankerman’ of Long Hill in Whitehouse in Westmoreland, had several charges laid against him following an incident in his community on Friday, January 05.

Reports from the Whitehouse police are that about 8:00 p.m., a man was standing along the roadway when he was approached by Richardson, who accused him of hitting a female acquaintance. He proceeded to slap the man, then pulled a firearm, pointed it at the man, and threatened to kill him. The man ran into nearby bushes to escape injury and later reported the incident to the police.

Richardson turned himself into the police and was subsequently charged on Monday, January 15.

His court date is being finalised.
