MADISON, Ala. (WHNT) — A man was arrested Sunday after deputies say he fired a weapon at Farmhaus Apartments in Madison on two separate occasions.
According to the Madison County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO), Mickel Demetrie Millender Jr., 21, was arrested after deputies say they stopped his car in that same apartment complex. He was charged with firing a weapon into an occupied residence and first-degree assault.
Deputies say they were called to the apartment complex on January 23 around 12:25 a.m. and again on January 27 at 9:35 a.m. Witnesses described Millender to officials as a Black man driving a red Chevrolet Cruze.
