According to court records filed today, Lee's Summit police officers responded on Aug. 15, 2022 on a reported shooting in Lee's Summit. On arrival, they contacted the juvenile victim, who was shot in the back. The victim was transported to the hospital. A witness told police that the defendant was in confrontation with a group of people. That led to a chase and during that chase the defendant fired a weapon from the vehicle into another vehicle. Detectives interviewed the defendant who told them he fired up to eight shots from a vehicle. He stated he had no intention of hurting anyone but wanted to scare them. 

Prosecutors requested a bond of $75,000 secured.
