23-year-old Steve Midgett Jr. and his brother, Stevarius Midgett, had an altercation with their neighbors, Aiyana Barnes and her mother, Brittany Martin, at the Charter Village Apartments on Rio Vista Drive on February 26th. Barnes argued with Midgett Jr., during which he came out of his apartment unit into the breezeway with an AR-style rifle wrapped in black/white camouflage. Midgett Jr. pointed the gun at her abdomen and threatened to kill her. Martin added that Stevarius Midgett also came out with a black AR-style rifle and pointed it at Barnes. Detectives spoke with witnesses, who corroborated Barnes’s and Martin’s statements. This altercation occurred the same day Midgett Jr. was taken into custody on an outstanding warrant regarding a prior May 2020 incident where Midgett Jr. started a fight at a funeral inside Mt. Ararat Baptist Church. Midgett Jr. was taken into custody for aggravated assault on March 12th.
