Oklahoma City police Capt. Dexter Nelson said Gerald Hume had a history of run-ins with police because of the defendant's mental health, including one in August 2009 at his mother's home.
“Gerald was involved in an incident in which he boarded up the windows of the residence, and shot at vehicles as they drove by,” Detective David Jacobson wrote a search warrant affidavit.
Hume, who was living with his mother at the time of his arrest, is due back in court Dec. 11 for a preliminary hearing conference, records show.
