The victim stated he was afraid enough to want to defend himself but didn’t want to be arrested. Police made contact with Burkett who denied his involvement because he was not home. Later while being detained, he admitted to being at the residence and the argument. Also, he said he knew the victim called the police so he left before they arrived.
