A Marion County man, 31-year-old Jamey Lee Rogers of Yellville, is being held in the Boone County Detention Center after law enforcement alleges he fired four rounds into a residence in Lead Hill. Online jail records indicate Rogers was booked into the detention center Sunday afternoon.
According to the probable cause affidavit, Rogers’ arrest follows the Boone County Sheriff’s Office receiving a call on the evening of April 14. The caller advised a person was shooting into a residence along Horseshoe Bend Road in the Lead Hill area.
Law enforcement observed four small caliber bullet holes in a bedroom window of the residence. The rounds appeared to have been fired from outside the residence through the windows at an upward angle and continued into the ceiling of the bedroom.
A female at the residence told law enforcement she was staying with her children at the residence belonging to her parents because she was estranged from Rogers, who she identified as her husband.
She said earlier in the evening she saw Rogers outside the bedroom where she and her children were sleeping.
The woman said Rogers demanded she let their children go with him, and she refused. She said she saw Rogers armed with a rifle and told her children to leave the bedroom.
She alleges as she moved from the window, the four rounds were fired.
A witness at the scene told law enforcement he heard the gun shots. When he went to the front door of the residence, he reported seeing Rogers outside with a rifle in his hands. He said he told Rogers to put down the weapon, and they would talk.
The witness said Rogers began to kick the front door attempting to force it open. He said Rogers left the yard still carrying the rifle.
No details on Rogers’ arrest five days after the incident are provided on the affidavit. He is being held on four felony counts of a terroristic act and aggravated assault on a family or household member and one count of attempted residential burglary. Rogers’ bond is set at $75,000.
