A New Bloomfield man was placed on five years supervised probation for pleading guilty to a charge in connection with a non-fatal shooting in March 2020.

During a hearing before Cole County Judge Dan Green, William Homfeldt-Nevins, 29, pleaded guilty to unlawful possession of a firearm. If he is found to violate the conditions of his probation, he faces seven years in prison.

In August, Michael Tripplett, 29, was sentenced to five years in prison for pleading guilty to second-degree assault and armed criminal action in the case. Prosecutors amended the assault charge down from first-degree and dismissed counts of unlawful use of a weapon and unlawful possession of a firearm. Tripplett was given credit for time served.

Last month, prosecutors dismissed a charge of unlawful use of a weapon against Ramonda Noldon, 19, of Holts Summit, in the case.

The incident occurred in the 200 block of East McCarty Street, according to Jefferson City Police Department probable cause statements.

The 911 center had received numerous calls about shots fired in the area. When officers arrived, they found numerous shell casings in front of a residence in the 200 block of East McCarty Street. It was later learned a person had been taken to St. Mary's Hospital for treatment of a gunshot wound to the leg.

Officers later spoke to the victim, who said Tripplett had gotten into an argument with a person from the neighborhood before the shooting. He made a threat and left in a vehicle with a woman, later identified as Noldon, whom witnesses claimed was Tripplett's girlfriend.

Tripplett returned and shot the victim, who was sitting on the front porch of the residence. The victim and other witnesses identified Tripplett as the shooter out of a photo lineup. The witnesses also identified Noldon out of a photo lineup.

Other witnesses told police Homfeldy-Nevins was in front of the residence at the time of the shooting and shot back at the vehicle Tripplett and Noldon were in.
