Grand jury indicts man for shooting at plane
SPRINGFIELD - The U.S. Attorney for the Western district of Missouri announced Friday a grand jury will indict a Miller man for shooting at an airplane.
David Leroy Dickenson, 38, is accused of attempting to set fire to, damage, destroy, disable and wreck a 1997 S2R 510 Thrush aircraft on Dec. 14, 2014. He allegedly shot a firearm at the aircraft while it was crop dusting, then attempted to dispose of the gun to avoid law enforcement discovering it.
The FBI in Kansas city said evidence supporting the charges must be presented to a federal trial jury, which will determine guilt or innocence.
