Two people were arrested Sunday after gunshots that were allegedly fired from an apartment on the second floor of a complex on South Blake Street went through the floor and into two downstairs apartments, according to a police report.
Testifying in Pine Bluff District Court Monday, Detective Jerry Lambert said police were sent to 2123 S. Blake St., where a female victim said a bullet came through the wall and struck a glass coffee table, shattering it while the woman was standing close by.
Lambert reported that officers went to an upstairs apartment where they spoke to the two occupants, Cameron Haywood, 22, and Brittany Walker, 21, about the incident. Lambert said Haywood became combative and Walker, whose name was on the lease, refused officers permission to enter the apartment.
While officers stood by and secured the scene, Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgworth was contacted and signed a search warrant for the apartment, Lambert said. When the warrant was served, officers found marijuana, as well as drug paraphernalia and digital scales.
In a separate affidavit, Vice and Narcotics Detective April Tirado reported that the marijuana weighed a total of 57 grams.
In court, Lambert said police were able to determine the shots were fired from a .40 caliber Glock pistol, and went through the floor of Apartment Nine to Apartments Two and Three.
There was a physical altercation between Walker and Haywood, and Walker reportedly fired the shots to stop Haywood “from beating her up,” the police report said.
According to the police report, no gun was recovered at the apartment.
Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney ruled prosecutors had probable cause to charge Walker with aggravated assault and Haywood with aggravated assault, possession of marijuana with purpose to deliver, and simultaneous possession of drugs and firearms.
Kearney ordered Walker and Haywood to have no contact with each other until the case is settled, and told them to come back to court April 22.
Haywood said he would hire his own attorney and the Public Defender’s Office was appointed to represent Walker.
