Multiple Shots Fired in Jefferson City
JEFFERSON CITY - The Jefferson City police responded to the 500 block of Ellis Boulevard around 5:15 p.m. Thursday to reports of multiple shots fired.
The incident took place directly behind a YMCA center, but there were no injuries.
After investigating at the scene, a 21 year-old man was taken into custody for felony unlawful use of a weapon.
Captain Doug Shoemaker said the incident was not related to an earlier disturbance at the same address at 9 a.m.
"These types of things typically are random. This is not an issue of violence intended against anybody in this case. So, it could happen anywhere in town, really. It's not a common thing, but it does happen at times, sure."
