Suspect shot by police is charged

NASSAU- A man shot by police during a pursuit has been charged

Prosecutors allege that Jordan Stubbs, 21, opened fire on police officers as he tried to evade officers in a pursuit that began at Gladstone and Carmichael Roads and ended on Soldier Road.

According to police, the occupants of two cars were firing at each other at the juncture of Gladstone and Carmichael Roads around 9pm on December 3.

The occupant of a Honda Fit opened fire on officers from the COVID-19 Enforcement Unit, which sparked a chase.

The officers called for backup and other units joined the pursuit. The suspect allegedly fired at the officers in a bid to evade capture. The case ended when the driver crashed his Honda Fit.

Prosecutors say Stubbs emerged from the damaged car and pointed his gun at officers, who shot him.

Stubbs, of Fox Hill, faced four counts of possession of a firearm with the intent to endanger life when he appeared in court. He was also accused of possession of a .40 Austria Glock and six rounds of ammunition for the weapon.

Stubbs wasn’t required to enter a plea to the charges and has been denied bail.

He returns to court on March 24, 2021.
