Shots fired in Belton

This morning around 5 AM, Belton officers were dispatched to the area of E 173rd St and Conti Ct on shots fired. The investigation determined that a citizen had spotted suspicious individuals on his home surveillance system and followed them in his vehicle. 

The citizen confronted the suspects in the area of E 173rd and Conti Ct at which time they fired shots at the citizen. The suspects then left the area in a black Honda Ridgeline truck which was later determined to be stolen. 

The truck was recovered later in the day in another jurisdiction. Luckily, the citizen was uninjured in the altercation.

Our department is working several cases involving stolen automobiles in this area and we encourage our citizens to remain vigilant in their neighborhoods. 

We also ask that when you do spot suspicious persons / activity, please call us with as much information as you can safely gather.
