L.I. man points gun at Jamaica resident: Brown

JAMAICA — A Suffolk County man was arraigned on criminal possession of a weapon, menacing and false personation charges for allegedly brandishing a loaded pistol at a Jamaica man, a spokeswoman for Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said.

Joseph Fermin, 25, of 103 Maple St. in Lake Grove, L.I., was arraigned Dec. 10 before Queens Criminal Court Judge Suzanne Melendez on charges of criminal possession of a weapon, menacing and false personation charges, the spokeswoman said. Melendez set bail at $10,000. Fermin was next scheduled to appear in court Jan. 20.

Fermin allegedly got into an argument with Shaquavia Inman Dec. 9 between 9:08 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. inside 125-60 Sutphin Blvd. in Jamaica, according to the criminal complaint.

When Inman’s brother, Shawn Inman, intervened in the dispute, Fermin allegedly pointed a silver pistol at Shawn Inman, the complaint said.

A .38 caliber silver taurus pistol loaded with six rounds of ammunition was recovered by officers, the complaint said.

Fermin allegedly gave a false name, Albert Chappelle, when he was questioned by cops, the complaint said.
