Madison Police Department officers are actively seeking a 20–year–old man who allegedly fired two shots from a pistol during a domestic argument.
According to reports, a warrant has been issued for the arrest of Joequan Kiekiess Gordon on charges of aggravated assault, aggravated stalking and discharging a firearm. A 29–year–old woman told police that on August 26 she was attempting to arrange child care for her and Gordon’s child. The woman said she currently has an active temporary protection order against Gordon that states he is not allowed near the victim or the woman’s child.
The woman said initially she arranged childcare with Gordon’s mother so she could go to her waitress job. However, she said, Gordon then called her and allegedly berated her for not allowing him to see the child. The woman said she feared Gordon would come to his mother’s house and, instead, arranged for the child to stay with a friend at a Penor Street residence.
While the woman was at work, she said, Gordon arrived and started banging on the restaurant’s door. The woman said Gordon fled when she picked up the phone to call 911. The woman then received a call alleging that Gordon was going to the Penor Street residence to get the child. The woman said she fled from her job and went to Penor Street where an argument between her and Gordon ensued.
During the argument, she said, Gordon threatened to shoot into her vehicle. She also alleged that he pointed a pistol at her. The woman said she was following a vehicle in which Gordon was a passenger and when the vehicle turned onto East Washington Street, Gordon allegedly pointed the pistol out the passenger window and fired two shots. The incident occurred around 11 a.m.
Several officers from several different agencies searched downtown Madison for Gordon and the older model green or blue Buick he was a passenger in but the searches yielded negative results.
Officers were told that Gordon currently resides in Athens.
