A man accused of firing shots at four people in a Kennedy Heights neighborhood turned himself in. Devonta Allen, 18, faces four counts of felonious assault.
Police say Allen was caught on video chasing after the four people on Tyne Avenue on July 25. He’s accused of firing three shots at the victims, hitting two different vehicles the victims were in. No one was hit.
According to court papers, he can be heard saying “I don’t like white people in my hood” on the video right before firing the shots.
Police say Allen turned himself in Monday night. He had an audiotaped statement admitting to shooting at the victims. However, he said they were armed and fired at him first.
Police say the video and statements from the victims and witnesses contradict Allen’s claims.
Allen will appear in court Wednesday.
