A Kansas City man, 20, who was on probation in other Jackson County felony cases and was prohibited from possessing a weapon has been charged in connection with domestic assaults and shooting at a girlfriend and her associates, resulting in the girlfriend being injured by a gunshot, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.

DeAndre D. Hooker Jr., dob: 2/4/1999, faces Domestic Assault 1st Degree, two counts of Domestic Assault, 2nd Degree, Domestic Assault 3rd Degree, three counts of Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Assault 2nd Degree, three counts of Armed Criminal Action and Unlawful Possession of a Weapon.*

According to court records, Hooker was on probation for three felonies in Jackson County. When he was arrested by police this week he admitted to both possessing a firearm while on probation and being in physical altercations with two victims, including shooting one of them. Witnesses said he and co-suspects fired at two different vehicles with four passengers. One victim was grazed in the head by a bullet. Multiple 9 mm shell casings were recovered at the scene, the 5300 block of Oak Leaf Drive in Kansas City, MO. Officers observed two vehicles on scene with bullet holes. Two shell casings recovered from the scene resulted in NIBIN hits, indicating those firearms were used in other eariler criminal offenses.

Prosecutors have requested a $150,000 bond.
