Tyree Callahan (22), Tyler Callahan (21), Trajon Miles (20), and Dejon Warner (21) were all charged with 1 count each of Attempted Second Degree Murder and Aggravated Criminal Damage to Property.
On July 6th around 7:15pm, officers were dispatched to the corner of Methvin Drive and N. 15th Street in reference to a drive-by shooting. Enroute to the location, officers came in contact with the suspect vehicle and conducted a traffic stop resulting in all occupants being placed into custody. A search warrant of the vehicle revealed multiple weapons along with numerous spent bullet casings. At least 15 recently-fired casings were found at the scene on Methvin Drive, as well as several places where projectiles struck surrounding property.
Officers learned that the incident began with an argument at TJ’s Tobacco Store on Hwy 51 North which resulted in the victim leaving the area on a dirt bike with the four suspects following behind him and shooting at him. The victim was not injured.
