Shots fired in rural Adrian

On 11/21/2022 Deputies were dispatched to the area of 14523 NW County Road 7501 Adrian Missouri of a reported subject that was shot at. On arrival the Deputies made contact with the victim. The victim stated that he owned property that bumps up with this address. 

He stated that he observed a fire that was spreading onto his property and attempted to make contact with the home owner. He stated that after he made contact with the home owner there was a verbal altercation between the two about putting the fire out. He stated that when he was headed back to his vehicle he heard a single gun shoot coming from the house area.

Contact was made with the home owner and he was taken into custody without incident. The home owner acknowledged the argument and stated that he did fire a round with the intent to intimidate the victim as the victim was leaving. The gun used was recovered from the residence.
This is the second person in the last few months that stated they were in the adjacent field and heard gun fire come from the residence and they felt it was to intimidate them from being in the field. That subject left the field and call the Sheriff's Office but did not want to pursue charges at that time.

Zachary S Williams of Rural Adrian was charged with Assault in the second degree and Armed Criminal Action. Williams bond was set at $50,000 cash only . Williams is currently being held in the Bates County Jail.
