Woman on probation arrested for threatening to shoot victim downtown on April 10

Staff report

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Keoinda Monique Sherman, 37, was arrested yesterday and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and simple battery with a prior battery conviction after allegedly pushing, spitting on, and threatening to shoot another woman downtown.

At about midnight on April 10 at 101 W. University Avenue, Sherman allegedly walked up to a woman she knows and pushed her in the back; the victim told a Gainesville Police Department officer that she turned around to leave without responding, but then Sherman spit on her. The victim said that Sherman then pulled out a handgun and pointed it at her and said “you a scared a** b**** now,” which caused the victim to fear for her safety. The victim said she left the area but told an officer she heard shots shortly after the incident. There was a shooting in the area of 100 W. University Avenue at about 12:12 a.m. on April 10.

The victim told the officer that Sherman is known to have a gun and reportedly showed him a video of a previous incident in which Sherman said she had a gun.

Last November, Sherman entered a plea of nolo contendere to two counts of battery (spitting) and was sentenced to one year of probation.

Judge William Davis set bail at $60,000 on her arrest warrant, but actual bail information is unavailable on weekends.
