Report of shots fired at house leads to arrest


A report that shots had been fired at a house Sunday in the Dollarway area resulted in the arrest of a man who allegedly fired the shots.

Javonte Williams, 21, allegedly shot a tire on a vehicle, struck a man in the face, then fired shots at the house, Detective Mike Sweeney said in a probable cause affidavit presented in court Thursday.

Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said the incident occurred at 1:40 a.m at 3 Needles Drive when several vehicles pulled up in front of the house and two females who were in one of the vehicles got out and threw a brick through the window of a parked car.

Williams allegedly fired a shot that hit one of the tires on the car and also allegedly struck a man in the face before getting back into his vehicle.

Sweeney said in the affidavit that witnesses reported seeing Williams lean out the window of the vehicle and fire several shots at the house, hitting it twice.

Kizer said in addition to the current allegation, Williams has a previous charge of terroristic threatening.

At the request of Kizer, Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set a $100,000 bond for Williams after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge him with committing a terroristic act.

Kearney also ordered Williams to have no contact with the alleged victims until the case is settled and told him to come back to court July 25.
