Starling was charged with eight counts of felony aggravated assault for firing shots at a Susannah Court apartment where a birthday party was taking place on April 16.

The shots were prompted by a dispute Starling had with one of the party attendees. No one was hit by the gunfire, but bullets did hit the apartment building, according to a MNPD press release.

MNPD officials say the case will be reviewed for potential federal prosecution in that Starling is alleged to have been armed as a convicted drug felon on parole.
