The Cole County Prosecutor’s Office charged a 31-year-old Jefferson City man Wednesday in connection with a Tuesday night shooting at a business on Clark Avenue.

Corey Thames has been charged with armed criminal action, first-degree assault and felon in possession of a firearm in the assault of Jeremy Tisdel, 39, of Jefferson City.

According to a Jefferson City Police Department probable cause statement, the incident occurred at the Break Time convenience store, 627 Clark St., around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Thames was seated in a vehicle on the store parking lot when he was approached by the victim, Jeremy Tisdel, 39, Jefferson City.
