A 24-year-old Alexandria man has been arrested for the Dec. 13 drive-by shooting in the Braddock area. No one was injured in the incident, but police say nine handgun rounds were fired at another vehicle.
Antonio Barkley was charged with unlawful discharge of a weapon, felonious assault, and shooting or throwing missiles at vehicle.
The incident was reported at around 8 a.m. in the area of First Street, Fayette Street and Route 1. Police briefly closed off the area during Monday morning rush hour traffic.
Barkley was interviewed at home by police, and said that the victim tried to fight him while he was walking to his car to get to work, according to a search warrant.
Barkley reportedly said that he went back home and got a handgun, then walked back outside to get into his car and saw the victim waiting in a black SUV.
Barkley told police that he was afraid of being assaulted, and “unprovoked, (Barkley allegedly) fired nine handgun rounds at the vehicle,” according to the warrant.
The victim’s car was damaged, but no one was hurt.
Police recovered video footage of the incident at the nearby McDonald’s. Both the victim and Barkley told police that their problems started after an argument in mid-November.
