Jermaine Andrew Ramsey, 36, faces a felony charge for assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury following a shooting that occurred early Thursday morning, September 5, on Rencher Street, just outside the city limits of Hillsborough.
Jarrid Brooks, 42, a longtime friend of Ramsey, is recovering from a .40 caliber gunshot wound to the face. Investigators believe Ramsey shot Brooks after an argument escalated.
Authorities arrested Ramsey on Saturday afternoon in Guilford County at Piedmont Triad International (PTI) Airport after receiving information from U.S. Customs and Border Protection that he had booked a flight from PTI Airport in Greensboro to Laguardia Airport in New York.
The magistrate set his bond at $200,000.00. His next court date is October 7 in Orange County.
