Teen arrested, charged for Grandview drive-by shooting

GRANDVIEW - An 18-year-old man was arrested following a drive-by shooting on Ash Street in Grandview this past Friday night.

According to police, officers responded to a shots fired call shortly after 10 p.m. Investigation revealed the front door of a residence had been struck by two rounds from a shotgun. Two empty shotgun shells were recovered from the street in front of the residence.

While interviewing victims, police said they garnered no suspect information. They also determined the incident was not in any way gang related.

Later that night, at almost midnight, Grandview police received a call from a Benton County Sheriff's deputy. Upon the deputy's request, a Grandview officer went to a home on Foisy Road.

"There had apparently been some type of dispute (earlier there)," said Grandview Assistant Police Chief Mark Ware. He explained that earlier in the evening a man with a shotgun demanded transportation to the Grandview area. The suspect was taken to the Ash Street area, although that wasn't his intended destination.

"During the altercation, or just after, the suspect fired two shotgun rounds at the victim residence," Ware said of the 10 p.m. shooting on Ash Street.

Ware added that, following the shooting, the subject was returned to the Foisy Road residence.

Felix Rosas III, 18, was arrested for the Grandview shooting. Officers are requesting charges of first degree assault, drive-by shooting and unlawful possession of a firearm.

Also Friday, a Grandview High School teacher reported the theft of his iPod from a classroom.

This past Sunday morning, police fielded a theft report from a victim in the 100 block of Birch Street whose checking account had been used fraudulently. The victim reported a $500 loss.
