A Holts Summit man was placed on five years supervised probation for pleading guilty to charges in connection to a shooting in September 2019 in Holts Summit.
According to online court records, Samuel Schroeder, 30, pleaded guilty to felony second-degree assault and misdemeanor fourth-degree domestic assault during a hearing before Callaway County Judge Brock Jacobs. Those charges were amended down by prosecutors from the original felony charges of first-degree assault and armed criminal action.
If Schroeder is found to have violated conditions of his probation, he faces seven years in prison.
The shooting was reported in the 100 block of North Summit Drive, according to Holts Summit Police Department reports.
Schroeder was still in the area shortly after the shooting, and he was taken into custody without incident.
A witness told authorities the victim had come to the residence to help her with moving her things out of the residence, which she shared with Schroeder. She claimed Schroeder had become angry about the potential of her taking things that belonged to him. She stated Schroeder came out the front door of the residence with a gun, and as the victim walked around the front of a truck, Schroeder fired twice at the victim, hitting him with both shots.
When taken into custody, officers said Schroeder made a spontaneous admission, "he was the guy that pulled the trigger."
