Brooks was charged in connection with an incident where two persons were shot and injured on July 27 last year.

He reportedly turned himself in to the Major Investigations Task Force on Wednesday and was taken into custody.

Police reports say on the day in question, Mavado and his entourage were allegedly at a bar near the intersection of Whitehall Avenue and Mannings Hill Road, St. Andrew, where his songs were being played.

It was said a certain individual ordered that no songs done by Mavado should be played.

Further reports say an ensuing altercation saw Mavado and his entourage leaving the bar. Several men later returned and proceeded to fire shots, injuring two persons.

Mavado returns to the Gun Court on May 27.
