Missouri vehicle shooting leads to assault charge

Police are often asked to investigate a variety of different allegations. While most are interested in ensuring that justice is served, it may be easy for even the most dedicated of law enforcement officers to draw conclusions that are not fully supported by evidence. For example, there are many unanswered questions -- including questions about a potential motive -- in an alleged shooting incident in Missouri that resulted in assault charges.

State troopers and deputies became involved after receiving a call one morning on a day in late February. The caller reported that a vehicle at a residence that had been struck by a bullet. Police talked with an elderly person at the home who was reportedly injured.

Law enforcement officers searched the area surrounding the home before reportedly discovering a 33-year-old man hiding under a pile of brush. Police say that he had a gun in his possession that they believe he used in the shooting. At the time, there was an outstanding warrant for his arrest. He now faces multiple other charges, including assault, domestic assault armed criminal action, unlawful possession of a weapon and unlawful use of a weapon among several other drug-related charges.

The Missouri man is currently being held on a $150,000 bond. Unfortunately, the assault and other charges that he is facing are significant, and a conviction will likely carry serious consequences. As a result, he is left to carefully consider his options and the potential consequences of each, which may be difficult to do without legal training. Many people who have found themselves in similar situations often feel more confident in their ability to make informed decisions after consulting with an experienced criminal defense attorney.
