The Independence Police Department respond to a report of shots fired in the area of Birdie and Regency Drive.
Witnesses reported a white mini-van fired about eight shots and then sped away from the scene Tuesday night at around 11:20pm. No evidence was located in the dark but officers were called back to the scene at 8:00am the following morning when a resident discovered spent shell casings. Later that morning, the vehicle matching the description was spotted on 24th.
Montgomery County Sheriff’s deputies stopped the vehicle and several items of evidence were recovered, including some items that may connect the men to a recent spree of burglaries in the area. 34-year-old Jacob Musgrove and 31-year-old Steven Schanstra were arrested. IPD is asking residents in the area to share any surveillance camera footage they think may help with the case.
