A First Avenue man has been arrested following a disturbance outside his home in which he repeatedly threatened to kill another man with a shotgun, city police alleged in court papers.
Kenneth Sharif Johnson, 23, of 665 First Ave., faces charges of terroristic threats, simple assault, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness as a result of the disturbance that involved Todd Street about 6:50 p.m. Friday, police said.
Street had gone to Johnson's home in an effort to resolve "a dispute," but Johnson punched him in the face "nearly causing him to go unconscious," police alleged in an affidavit.
When officers arrived on the scene, they heard Johnson "repeatedly yelling at Street that he was going to kill him with a shotgun," police said.
An officer intercepted Johnson and stopped him as he headed back into the house to get the weapon, police said.
Johnson became more and more belligerent and began yelling profanities once officers reached the scene, police said.
