A McMinnville man has been charged in relation to a drive-by shooting that occurred Sunday, Oct. 3.
Regan Tanner Muncey, 30, has been charged with one count of vandalism and one count of reckless endangerment. He’s allegedly the man who shot one round at Turner’s Marine on Smithville Highway, shattering the window in its office door with an unknown type weapon.
The incident was featured in the Oct. 6 edition of the Southern Standard, an article that included a surveillance camera picture of the truck as it drove past the business traveling toward Smithville. It returned a couple minutes later traveling in the direction of McMinnville, slowed, and stopped at approximately 6:11 p.m.
Simultaneously, a second surveillance camera caught the image of the window in the office door shattering as a bullet traveled through it. The projectile traveled across the room and struck near the area of a metal filing cabinet.
The truck was described as a Ford F-150 extended cab. Sightings of the truck “as seen in the newspaper” were reported to 911.
Warren County Sheriff’s Department provided no motive as to why Muncey reportedly shot into the business.
