A Charleston man wanted in connection with a shooting Monday evening turned himself over to authorities Tuesday afternoon.

Jerry M. Kincaid Jr., 43, surrendered to detectives at the Bradley County Judicial Center, according to Bob Gault, media relations coordinator for the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office.

Kincaid was charged with aggravated assault in the alleged shooting of Gilbert Blair, 48.

Kincaid is expected to appear in Bradley County General Sessions Court later today. He is currently being held without bond pending his appearance.

The shooting occurred just after 8 p.m. Monday at a Burris Lane residence located just off Frontage Road in Charleston, according to reports.

Blair and his girlfriend reportedly got into an argument at the Blair residence.

Blair’s girlfriend was reportedly identified as Kincaid’s sister. Kincaid allegedly pulled a handgun and shot Blair in the lower left abdomen.

At the time of the initial investigation, officials were unclear how many gunshots were fired, according to reports.

Charleston Police Department and Bradley County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the scene after a call to 911 dispatchers that a man had suffered a gunshot wound. An investigation began which established Kincaid as a suspect.

Blair was treated at the scene and then taken via Bradley County Emergency Medical Service ambulance to Erlanger Medical Center for treatment.

According to Gault, Blair remains hospitalized at EMC.
