Grand jury returns indictment for Bryan St. shooting

A Christian County Grand Jury returned multiple indictments Friday, including against a Hopkinsville man for allegedly shooting three people.

Indicted on three counts of first-degree assault is 20-year old Demontrai Kimbrough of Hopkinsville, who is alleged to have shot Zavion Chamberlain, Isiah Campbell and Jaquavious Whitlock with a firearm in May. The shooting occurred on Bryan Street and all three victims were flown to a Nashville hospital for severe injuries.  Kimbrough is lodged in the Christian County Jail on a $500,000 bond.

In direct submissions to the grand jury, four people were indicted on two counts of first-degree wanton endangerment each, including 19-year old Chamarcus Joyce, 43-year old Monquayvious Mason, 21-year old Jakwantiral Joyce and 25-year old Deaerion Downey, all of Hopkinsville. They are alleged to have engaged in actions that created a substantial risk of injury or death to two victims in October of 2018.

Indicted for second-degree robbery and criminal possession of a forged instrument is 19-year old Datwain Burse of Lexington, who allegedly attempted to purchase an iPhone from a victim in Christian County in 2018 using fake money. When the victim confronted him about the $580 in fake cash, Burse allegedly fled—the victim pursued him.  Burse reportedly threatened to shoot the victim if they continued to follow him.
