Prosecutors in Jasper and Newton counties on Saturday charged Tom S. Mourning II of Joplin with multiple counts of armed criminal action, first-degree felony assault and unlawful use of a weapon.
Joplin Police spokesman Capt. Bob Higginbotham says four people in a church van were wounded around 5:10 a.m. Saturday when Mourning opened fire on their vehicle at a Joplin intersection. Police say Mourning then drove 10 blocks and shot at a pickup truck stopped at another intersection, wounding two people.
The incident ended at 5:22 a.m. when Mourning stopped and surrendered to police.
It was unclear if Mourning had obtained an attorney overnight.
