Unlawful use of a weapon near a Carl Junction ball field.

Updated:
CARL JUNCTION, MISSOURI -

On Thursday evening (6-2-16) dispatch received several calls from people at the ball field, located at Frank Dean Sports Complex in Carl Junction. They reported shots being fired in the direction of the ball field by someone in a red truck on Highway 171, near the Center Creek Bridge. They were able to give a very accurate description of the truck. It was reported that the truck squealed tires, and headed south on Highway 171.

A Jasper County Deputy located the truck, and followed it until he had a back up unit, due to the truck having several occupants. The Deputies stopped the vehicle near Schifferdecker and 7th Street in Joplin.

Contact was made with all the occupants of the vehicle. A handgun was located during a search of the vehicle. One of the occupants was taken into custody for “Unlawful use of a weapon”. Charges have been submitted to the Jasper County Sheriff’s Prosecutor’s Office.
