A 39-year-old Alexandria man skipped his court date this week after being charged with brandishing a firearm against his mother.
Linwood Gunter did not show up for court on Tuesday (Feb. 22), and his case is pending. He was arrested on the date of the incident, Feb. 8, and released on $1,000 bond the next day after receiving the brandishing charge.
The incident occurred at around 9:50 p.m. after the woman called 911 to report that her son pointed a gun at her head, according to a police search warrant affidavit. The woman told the dispatcher that she was safely inside a neighbor’s apartment and that her son was alone.
The mother told police that her son argued with a cousin earlier in the day, and that they began to argue. She then told police that he left the room and got a handgun, returned and pointed it at her face and threatened to kill her, according to the search warrant.
“She stated Mr. Gunter pointed the gun at her head and threatened to ‘bust her upside the head with it,'” police reported in the warrant.
During their investigation, Gunter allegedly told police that it was a paintball gun. Police then found a paintball gun under the couch.
