Shooting investigation leads to arrest

JOPLIN, Mo. - Joplin Police respond to a possible shooting at a home on Monday, July 8th. After investigating, they cited Jerry Paul Crow II, 19, with Domestic Assault and Unlawful Use of a Weapon.

Monday morning, authorities got a tip that a gun was shot and that there was an argument inside a home at 716 W. 9th Street. Police went to the home around 9:50 am and could hear what sounded like an argument.

Because there were possible gunshots, authorities set up a perimeter around the house and used a loud hailer to get those involved to come out of the house.

A man and woman both exited the house and were detained.

Police determined that they were involved in a relationship and that the man assaulted the woman. They say she didn't have any visible injuries.

Investigators say during the argument, the man fired multiple rounds but didn't hit anyone.

Police say shortly after 10:00 pm on July 7th and around 1:00 am on July 8th, they got calls from the area of 12th and Connor and 9th and Moffet about people hearing what sounded like gunshots. The callers didn't know where they were coming from. Officers went to the area at those times but didn't find any issues or the source of the gunshots. It's unknown if the gunshots were related to the disturbance at 716 W. 9th Street.
