Police: Alexandria Man Arrested For Pointing Gun at Neighbor

A 40-year-old Alexandria man is in jail for alleged cocaine possession and pointing a gun at his neighbor.

Devonte Burgess was arrested at his home in the Mayflower Square apartments in the 5900 block of Quantrell Avenue on the evening of April 8. He was charged with possession of cocaine, weapon possession by a felon and brandishing a weapon.

The victim is Burgess’ neighbor, and told police that before the incident they had an argument — less than a mile from their respective homes — at the 7-Eleven at 6120 Lincolnia Road, according to a police search warrant affidavit.

“The two exchanged words inside the store,” police reported. “The verbal altercation was in reference to Burgess having an ongoing dispute with the victim’s neighbor.”

The victim left the store in a car and Burgess left on a bicycle, according to the affidavit. The victim arrived in the parking lot and told police that he waited in his car for Burgess to walk inside his apartment.

“As he was exiting his vehicle to walk towards his residence he observed Burgess walk out of his apartment building with what he believed to be a black handgun at his side,” the affidavit said.

The victim told police that Burgess followed him inside the building and then pointed the gun at him, and racked the slide to show it was loaded. Burgess the allegedly left the building and the victim called the police.

Burgess was arrested without incident.
