A felony arrest warrant was issued Feb. 4 for a Muldrow man charged with first-degree burglary.
Joseph Allen White III, 33, faces up to 20 years in prison on the charge.
According to court records, on Jan. 2, a Sequoyah County sheriff’s deputy was dispatched in reference to a burglary with shots fired. When the deputy arrived at the residence he met with the homeowner who told him that White had been sending him texts threatening to kill him and anyone else that was at his residence. He said he tried to talk White down but White stated that he wanted him to die and was bringing guns with him.
White allegedly showed up at the residence and stood outside the front door yelling. The homeowner said he told White to leave his property, but instead of leaving, White kicked the front door in. The homeowners brother then came down the hallway with a .410 shotgun and shot toward White at the front door and struck the right side of the door frame. White then ran outside the residence and drove off while firing a gun out the window.
