    Police: Man assaulted roommate before being shot by third man

    The Allentown man shot inside his home Sunday afternoon had a fight with his roommate -- who suffered a fractured skull -- before a third man did the shooting, police said.

    Kareem Barber, 24, of 445 Tilghman St., was shot in the torso after hitting and pushing Kenneth Davenport, 26, of the same address. Davenport fell and hit his head on bedroom furniture and received a fractured skull before a third man shot Barber, according to arrest papers filed by police.

    Police know the identity of the shooter but it was unclear whether they had arrested him as of early today. They filed arrest papers yesterday against Barber, charging him with aggravated and simple assault on Davenport.

    Davenport was also picked up on an arrest warrant and charged yesterday with assaulting a girlfriend in July 2007, his charging papers state.

    According to court documents:

    Barber is engaged to Davenport's sister, Lameesha Davenport. She and Barber argued about 3:30 p.m. at the apartment Sunday and Kenneth Davenport got in it.

    Barber hit and shoved Kenneth Davenport to the ground. The third, unnamed man then shot Barber in retaliation for Kenneth Davenport's injuries.

    Kenneth Davenport left the apartment before police arrived. They later found him at St. Luke's Hospital-Allentown but he was soon transferred to St. Luke's Hospital-Fountain Hill.

    Police found Barber at home with a gunshot wound to his torso. When asked how he was shot, he told police that he "was fighting and that's what dudes do."

    Whitehall District Judge Robert C. Halal arraigned Barber and sent him to Lehigh County Prison under $100,000 bail. He also arraigned Kenneth Davenport for the year-old assault. In that case, according to the court documents:

    Davenport was with his girlfriend, Madeline Rivera, about 5:30 a.m. July 15, 2007, when they got into an argument over her cell phone at the McDonald's on Tilghman Street in Allentown. He wanted her phone but she wouldn't give it to him.

    She got out of a car and was going to walk home but he followed her. At 14th and Gordon streets, Davenport got out of the car and tried to snatch the phone from Rivera's backpack.

    He punched her in the mouth and took off. Police found Rivera at Sacred Heart Hospital's emergency room -- she had walked there and had received a few stitches in her lower lip.

    Halal sent Davenport to Lehigh County Prison under $10,000 bail.

    Sounds like all parties involved should be shot :dunno:
    Although it sounds like the shooter may have a chance at beating any charges he could claim he was in fear for his friends life. But I'm sure it will turn out he was a felon too :mamoru:
