Dr Dayton Campbell, member of parliament (MP) for North West St Ann, has submitted his licensed firearm for testing by police investigators.

The weapon was handed over yesterday, after an incident involving the MP and a man on Monday.

According to reports, while at a meeting in the constituency, the man approached Campbell and made certain demands.

When the demands were not met, the MP and the man got involved in an altercation.

Campbell allegedly pulled his firearm.

Following the incident, the man filed a report with the St Ann police.

Attorney-at-law Oswest Senior-Smith, who is representing Campbell, told The Gleaner yesterday that his client maintains that he was not the aggressor and that he was defending himself.
