Dancehall Gully Gad Mavado will face the judge today to answer to assault charges stemming from a shooting incident last week that left his childhood friend dead.

According to reports, Mavado and members of his entourage got into a tussle with an off duty police officer at the Quad night club while attending Bounty Killer’s birthday bash.

Allegations are that approximately 4 a.m Monday morning (June 13) shots were fired and Mavado’s friend, identified as Conroy Edwards, was wounded and rushed to the hospital. Edwards died 4 days later.

Mavado was charged with assault occasioning bodily harm following a shooting incident.

The “So Special” deejay said he have reasons to believe that the bullet was meant for him and that there maybe a hit out for his assassination.

Mavado is expected to appear in the Half Way Tree Resident Magistrate Court
