The Stone County Sheriff’s Office releases information about a shooting in the Shell Knob area on Monday.
Deputies were dispatched to the scene after a report of a vehicle being shot. Officers interview the victim who stated he met a vehicle on a road in the Turkey Two Subdivision. The victim said he recognized the vehicle and tried to avoid a confrontation by turning his vehicle around when he observed the driver pull out a pistol and fire it toward his vehicle.
The vehicle was hit three times, but the driver was not injured.
Stone County Detectives investigated the incident and eventually located the driver of the vehicle the shots were fired from and he was taken into custody.
The name of the suspect has not been released pending filing of charges by the Stone County Prosecuting Attorney.
