For Immediate Release

March 9, 2018

A Kansas City businessman has been charged with multiple felony counts for exhibiting and firing a weapon at someone believed to be selling stolen pipe, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.

David Jungerman, dob: 3/03/1938, faces Unlawful Use of a Weapon (Class B felony), Unlawful Use of a Weapon (Class E felony), Assault 4th Degree (Misdemeanor) and Armed Criminal Action.*

According to court records filed today, Kansas City police were called by a party about two persons who had just brought in hundreds of pounds of iron pipe to be sold at a Kansas City recycling business. The calling party stated he was armed. Yelling and arguing could be heard in the background. Video surveillance from the recycling business showed the defendant, David Jungerman, removed a handgun from his jacket and pointed it at one victim multiple times. After he pointed the gun close to the victim's face, the victim turned and ran away. At one point a shot was fired. He then pointed the weapon at another victim, a woman, while he appeared to try to pull her from a vehicle. Jungerman, who owns a business at 131 Belmont, told police later he fired the shot as a warning. Police recovered a .38 revolver with 1 spent shell casing and four live rounds from the defendant's vehicle.

Prosecutors requested a bond of $1,000,000 cash.
