A 28-year-old Miami man injured during a shooting at a shopping plaza on Sunday morning is facing charges of robbery, simple assault and criminal mischief, in connection to the incident, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said Monday.
Darryl Gary-Paul McLinton “was the aggressor” leading up to the shooting at Palm Beach Commons plaza around 4:30 a.m. Sunday, spokeswoman Teri Barbera said in an inquiry from WPTV.
McLinton is being held on $3,500 bond at the Palm Beach County jail and is facing charges of burglary of unoccupied conveyance, damage to property-criminal mischief and simple assault with intent to do violence.
He was ordered not to have contact with the victim. His next court appearance was set for 10:30 a.m. Jan. 23.
No details on the incident, including the shooter, were available from Barbera. And the arrest report isn’t posted on the clerk site on Christmas.
