A Jefferson City man is facing criminal charges after an incident early Saturday morning where gunshots were reportedly fired.

Antonio Ingram, 35, is charged with two counts of unlawful use of a weapon and one count each of unlawful possession of a firearm and delivery of a controlled substance.

Officers were called to the 800 block of Broadway Street around for a report of shots fired at 12:41 a.m. Saturday, according to a Jefferson City Police Department probable cause statement. Officers found a person who had been reportedly assaulted by an unknown man with an edged weapon. The victim would not cooperate with officers.

Officers found six spent shell casings in the driveway of a residence in the 200 block of Broadway Street. Around that time, officers saw Ingram walk out of a nearby apartment. Officers found Ingram had reportedly placed images on social media showing him in possession of a firearm and detained him.

Officers later reviewed a security video of the area where the shots had been fired, which allegedly showed Ingram firing multiple rounds toward an unknown man in the 800 block of Broadway Street. The video showed Ingram fleeing from the area after the shots were fired.

Authorities searched Ingram's residence on Broadway Street and reportedly found three firearms, including a Smith and Wesson revolver, along with approximately 155 grams of marijuana in packaging, a digital scale, cellophane bags and 13 various pills believed to be controlled substances.

When questioned, Ingram denied knowledge of the shooting and denied posting photographs of himself on social media. He admitted he is prevented from owning or possessing firearms because of his past felony convictions.
