KAMLOOPS – A man lucky to be alive following a gunshot wound to the face was granted a $5,000 bail Thursday morning in Provincial Court.

Emmanual “Manny” Brooks, 23, sported a neck brace with his prison attire to continue his bail hearing from August 13.

Brooks is charged with uttering threats and mischief under $5,000 after allegedly threatening his associate and smashing windows and potted plants on his property with a golf club. Following the incident he was taken into custody.

The alleged incident came after Brooks was shot in the face on Fortune Drive August 2. The bullet remains lodged in his spine.

Provincial Court Judge Stella Frame granted Brooks bail, but cautioned him he’s “dangerously close” to being arrested should he not comply with the court’s terms.

Brooks is banned from attending any red-zoned area of downtown from 5 Avenue to 13 Avenue and from Lorne Street to Columbia Street. He is ordered not to possess drugs or weapons.

“You don’t go in there,” Frame said.

Brooks is ordered not to possess drugs or weapons while he remains under house arrest at a residence in Rayleigh.

He will return to court on August 28.
