Wanted: Man Accused of Holding Gun to Woman's Head

Mount Pleasant Police are searching for Kevontae Oliver after he reportedly fled from a home where a woman says he held a gun to her head.

Mount Pleasant Police are searching for a 21-year-old Racine man accused of holding a gun to a woman's head and threatening to kill her.

A warrant was issued early Thursday morning for Kevantae Oliver after he fled the scene, leaving behind a hand gun he reportedly stole in another incident from Kankakee, IL.

According to a written statement from MPPD, officers were called by a neighbor at 4:22 a.m. Wednesday to a home in the 1300 block of Oakes Road for reports of a man and woman fighting. While police were arriving on scene, a woman called 911 and said she had been beaten and that the man she was with held a gun to her head and threatened to kill her.

Officers made a tactical entry to the home and located the victim and a .45 handgun, but the man - later identified as Oliver- had already fled. A run of the gun's serial number turned up a report from Kankakee, IL, where it had been stolen in a burglary. Police also say they discovered Oliver was on parole supervision.

Mount Pleasant referred charges of reckless endangering safety, possession of a firearm by a felon, receiving stolen property, battery/domestic abuse, and disorderly conduct/domestic abuse to the Racine County District Attorney.

Early Thursday morning, the state Department of Corrections issued a warrant for Oliver's arrest.

If anyone has contact with Oliver, they are urged to use caution. Anonymous tips can be sent to CRIME STOPPERS anonymously by: calling 1-888-636-9330, email: http://racine.crimestoppersweb.com, or text message: RACS to 274637(CRIMES).

If they had banned assault weapons and made it mandatory that he could only buy a gun at a licensed gun dealer and had a background check, this would never have happened.

Mau i really hope that was a sarcastic comnent because banning asault weapons only takes the guns out of law abiding citizens hands criminals do and will continue to get their hands on whatever firearms they desire. A written law will not stop the bad people from getting theses weapons and using them.

Yes I was being sarcastic. This guy already was breaking existing laws without the need for further gun ban legislation. Another bit of sarcasm on my part, were they up at 4:22 getting ready for work when this happened?

Kevontae Oliver will have a gun no matter what laws are enacted, because he could care less about the law. Liberal initiatives to tighten gun control only underscore how detached they are from the Universe we live in. Perhaps they are better served by regulating large soft drinks like their spokesperson and savior of humanity, Mayor Bloomberg.
