Prosecutors have charged a Grain Valley man with first-degree assault and armed criminal action in connection with a May 1 shooting that wounded another Grain Valley man.
According to court records, Jeremiah Britt, 30, used a slur in addressing a Grain Valley woman and accused her children of throwing rocks at his car.
The woman’s husband later knocked on Britt’s door to talk about what had happened. Britt came to the door and, after a brief exchange, allegedly pointed a gun and fired one shot, injuring the man’s left leg.
Grain Valley officers searched Britt’s residence and recovered a handgun from a bedroom, according to court records.
A 2014 news article in The Star quoted Britt as identifying himself as a head of a local chapter of the Bandidos Motorcycle Club. Club members gathered in Grain Valley for a weekend rally in August.
