19-year-old arrested for allegedly threatening to shoot man


RACINE — A 19-year-old Racine man allegedly pointed a gun at another man’s face and threatened to shoot him.

It’s a bit chilly, but the Silfra fissure in Iceland boasts some of the clearest, most pure water in the world, making it one epic dive.

Brandon Oates-Carson, of the 2200 block of Loni Lane, was charged with a felony count of first-degree recklessly endangering safety, a misdemeanor count of pointing a firearm at another and two misdemeanor counts of bail jumping.

According to a criminal complaint:

At 7:16 a.m. Thursday, an officer was sent to an apartment complex where Oates-Carson was reportedly pointing a gun at another man.

Upon arrival, the officer spoke with two witnesses, one of which said Oates-Carson was still in the apartment with the gun. She said that she and the victim were kicking him out of the apartment and then he became upset, pulled out a handgun and pointed it at the victim’s face. He then threatened to shoot him before putting the gun back in his pocket.

Oates-Carson admitted to pointing the gun at the victim and said he did it because the victim came at him with a garbage can. He said he threw the gun down the trash chute, but then admitted he put it in the oven. The gun was found and it had one round in the chamber. Oates-Carson was given a $50,000 cash bond in Racine County Circuit Court on Monday. A preliminary court hearing is set for April 15 at the Racine County Law Enforcement Center, 717 Wisconsin Ave., online court records show.
