A Gainesville man is accused of aiming multiple guns at four victims and striking one with a gun.

Karey Evan Gee, of 309 SW 16th Ave., was arrested and charged with aggravated battery and four counts of aggravated assault Tuesday, according to a Gainesville Police report.

The incident began when one of the victims, a maintenance man at Frederick Gardens Apartments, took a picture of trash left outside Gee’s apartment, the report said. Gee was upset and argued with the victim, according to the GPD report.

Two more victims argued with Gee, the maintenance worker told GPD. He began to record as Gee approached the other victims with a gun. Gee put the gun in his waistband and confronted the maintenance worker.

The maintenance worker also witnessed Gee strike one of the victims with a gun, the report said. The victim hit with the gun told GPD he was at the pool when he saw Gee arguing with the maintenance worker. He said he asked Gee to calm down.

He also said Gee went into his apartment and returned with a rifle, which he pointed at him and the other victim, the report said. He said the gun sounded like Gee cocked it, and Gee once again went inside his apartment, returning with a handgun with laser sight.

Gee pointed the handgun at the victims and also approached the maintenance worker with a pistol in his hand.

Another victim arrived when Gee ran to her with a pistol in his hand. One of the other victims got in front of her and Gee hit him.

After his arrest, Gee told GPD that he was in an argument with the maintenance worker because he took a picture of the trash outside his apartment. He said the victims got involved and threatened to beat him so he “stood his ground” by getting a gun and pointing it at the victims.

Gee is being held at the Alachua County Jail with his bond set at $55,000.
