A Bonifay man was arrested after a gunshot incident led to multiple drug and gun charges.Â
Holmes County Communications was notified Feb. 7 that an individual with a gunshot wound was at Doctors Memorial Hospital for treatment.
At the hospital, deputies and investigators made contact with the victim and a witness. The victim stated that on the evening of Feb. 6, she had a verbal altercation with Gordon Wood, a convicted felon, who she claimed shot her legs with a .22 caliber rifle with rat shot.
After speaking with the victim and witness separately and locating spent .22 caliber casings at Wood’s residence where the incident occurred, HCSO investigators obtained a search warrant for the property.Â
The search produced two firearms, a baggie of methamphetamine, several hypodermic syringes and various other drug paraphernalia. Wood was not present at the home.
On Feb. 15, officers with the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force to include deputies with the Holmes County Sheriff’s Office located Wood at a residence on Gavin Road in Bonifay. In the same location, officers found two firearms and ammo for each, which included a firearm on his person.
Wood was taken into custody and transported to the Holmes County Jail. In addition to active warrants for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, felon in possession of a firearm, and sale of a controlled substance, he is also charged with an additional count of felon in possession of a firearm and carrying a concealed weapon.
Sheriff John Tate would like to thank all agencies that make up the US Marshals Fugitive Task Force for their assistance in safely apprehending Wood.
