Bates County Sheriff Investigating Shooting

On October 26th at approximately noon Bates County Sheriff’s Office received a call of a subject who was shooting at some tree trimmers.

The incident happened at CR3508 and CR6207 in rural southwest of Butler.

The reporting party stated that they were trimming trees around power lines when they observed a 2015 or newer, lifted black dodge truck with oversized tires, racing carelessly down the road where they were working. The trimmers used hand motions to get the drivers attention to slow down. After the driver passed the tree trimmers, he slid his truck to a stop and got out and shot at least two rounds at or near the tree trimmers.

The occupants of the truck were described as a white male in his 20’s, short and stocky stature. The female passenger was taller than the male with blonde hair.

Shell casings were recovered from the roadway and are being sent to the Missouri State Highway Patrol to be processed for

DNA, Fingerprints, and ballistic comparisons.

If you were the female that was in the vehicle, Bates County Sheriff’s Office believe it would be in your best interest to come forward with information. If you have information, please contact a Detective at 660-679-3232.
