23-year-old Christen Singleton fired a shot at Rodney Wiggins near the Mountain View apartments on Mountain Springs Road in the early hours of March 21st. Officers received three calls regarding gunfire at the complex, with a vehicle speeding off immediately after. When officers arrived, they spoke with Wiggins. Wiggins advised that he was walking his dog when a black Cadillac pulled up next to him, and the passenger, a black male in a pink hoodie, later identified as Singleton, started yelling at him. Singleton then pulled out a handgun, shot a round in Wiggins’ general direction, and sped off. Wiggins added that the shot placed him in fear for his life. Detectives investigated, located Singleton in the Cadillac, and detained him. When officers patted Singleton down, they found a Glock 22 handgun in his sweater pocket. Officers then performed a “show-up,” during which Wiggins confirmed Singleton being the shooter. After this, Singleton advised them that he had a small plastic bag of Percocet that he did not have a prescription for. Singleton was taken into custody for reckless endangerment and simple possession.
