MARICOPA — A street fight with a lifelike replica of a Glock 19 caused a real firearm confrontation in Maricopa.

On Sept. 10, Shakaiya Irving was arrested on Porter and Honeycutt roads for aggravated assault, assault, disorderly conduct and threatening/intimidating.

About 20 people were involved in a fight in the streets. 

Irving and several friends allegedly went to fight a juvenile resident after the resident sent Irving their address and told them to come over and fight.

They arrived at the resident's home and the male victim and other members living in the house came out to confront Irving and her friends with a bat. When Irving saw the bat, she allegedly took a lifelike replica of a Glock 19 from her vehicle and struck the male victim with the "gun" in the face during a large physical fight between those living with the resident and her friends.

Once this occurred, those living within the residence reportedly believed they were in serious danger, seeing the lifelike gun replica they thought was real. They went inside the house and retrieved a real firearm and during the fight, one unintentionally discharged it with a round going into a nearby vehicle.

After this happened, Irving and her friends drove off but didn't get far. Once they were apprehended, the replica weapon was recovered under Irving's seat, where she said it was.
