Man Shot By Occupants After He Shoots Into Their Home, Dispute Went On Throughout The Day


MEXICO, MISSOURI – A man was shot by a homeowner after he began shooting at the house. The gunfight occurred in the 1000 block of West Breckenridge Street on Monday night. According to Major Brice Mesko of the Mexico Department of Public Safety, the incident was the culmination of an on-going issue between the parties.

The man had been to the home numerous times during the day and threatened the occupants, who called police each time. Unfortunately, arriving officers found that the man had already left the scene each time that they arrived.

The man returned around 6:00 p.m., and this time, instead of making threats he fired a gun in the direction of the home. The occupants, who were obviously on high-alert due to the previous incidents, returned fire in the direction of the man.

Suffering from a gunshot wound, the man identified by police only as a 30-year-old from Mexico, sped away in his car before crashing on North Missouri Street. He then walked to a nearby house and got a ride to the Audrain Community Hospital. He was later transferred to a Columbia hospital. Police did not disclose his condition. 

Major Mesko did say that it was not a random incident and that the parties knew each other. The occupants of the home were not injured, and charges may be filed pending the outcome of the investigation.
