Updated March 17, 2015:  Shawn Hency, Dakota Bate, and Dakota Pilier have been arrested for one count each of :  1st Degree Burglary and 2nd Degree Murder, respectively. The 2nd Degree Murder arrests are a result of the death of their co-conspirator, Michael P. Dean of Oronogo, MO.

The results of the investigation indicate that both of the home invasions were consecutive and related events. (1616 W. 4th St. and 407 S. St. Charles). The police department is no longer seeking the involved, black SUV.

Updated March 16, 2015:  Joplin Police found a suspect dead at the scene of a home invasion.

Officers responded to multiple calls about gunshots at 1616 West 4th Street just after 5:00 am. It was there they found 32-year-old Michael Dean of Joplin dead from a gunshot wound. Dean was a suspect in the home invasion.

At 4:30 am, JPD responded to another home invasion at 407 South St. Charles Avenue where the owner said the intruders left after realizing they had targeted the wrong home. JPD cannot verify if the two invasions are connected. Officers are searching for multiple other suspects who left the scene at 4th Street  in a vehicle said to be a black SUV.

Captain Bob Higginbotham says there is no threat to area residents."We have no reason that the public at large is in any danger right now."

He also says the neighborhood where the shooting happened does not raise concern.

--

Joplin Police say there were no injuries to the home owner or any other area residents at either location.

Media release from Joplin Police Department:

On March 16, 2015 at approximately 0503, Joplin Police responded to 1616 W. 4th St. in reference to gunshots. It was determined that there had been a home invasion at this location. Upon arrival, officers located one suspect who is deceased as a result of a gunshot wound. We are seeking multiple suspects that fled the scene.

There is a potential suspect vehicle being described as a black SUV. We are conducting a death investigation at this location. 

On March 16, 2015, at approximately 4:30AM, Joplin Police responded to 406 S. St. Charles in reference to a home invasion. There were no injuries reported. The suspects left this residence shortly after entering, possibly after recognizing that they had targeted the residence in error.

It has yet to be determined if these two incidents are related.
