Four people were charged after allegedly going to a Jefferson City home on Tuesday and pulled guns on a woman.

Larry Buchanan, of Russellville, was charged with first-degree burglary, unlawful use of a weapon, armed criminal action and resisting arrest. Jamond Whitfield, Charrelle Miller and Terence Roberson, all of Jefferson City, were charged with unlawful use of a weapon and armed criminal action. All four people are being held at the Cole County Jail without bond.

Arraignments were set for all four people on Thursday. Court records show Buchanan pleaded not guilty and a bond review hearing for him was set for 10:30 a.m. Friday, June 28. He also has a preliminary hearing scheduled for 2 p.m. Thursday, July 18.

According to the probable cause statement, police were called to the 300 block of Ashley Street for a report of several people pointing guns at a home. The statement says there was an “ongoing feud” between neighbors and that the victim’s brother had got into a fight with Whitfield’s brother on Monday. Whitfield allegedly wanted to fight the victim’s brother, court documents say.

The victim claimed there were at least 20 people with Whitfield who had guns, the statement says. Court documents claim that Buchanan had slapped the woman while she was trying to get back into her house. Buchanan then allegedly tried to force his way into the home, court documents say. Buchanan allegedly tried to hit the woman with a gun, but the woman used pepper spray on him, the statement says.

All the people who arrived at the home allegedly scattered when police were called, the statement says.

Eventually, police used a search warrant to find Buchanan. Court documents say law enforcement had to use a Taser after Buchanan refused commands.

Whitfield allegedly told police that he stayed inside a home while arguing occurred at the home where the incident occurred, the statement says. Police used a search warrant and allegedly found a gun. Whitfield allegedly told police he did not have a gun. Roberson was also arrested while the search warrant was executed.

Miller allegedly left a home while police were still at the scene and tried to walk away from the area, but the victim was able to identify her, court documents say. A gun was found in her purse when she was arrested, according to court documents.
