KANSAS CITY —A Kansas City man faces felony charges for firing a weapon from one vehicle into another, injuring a passenger, according to Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker.

Jeremy D. Brown Jr. faces Unlawful Use of a Weapon and  Armed Criminal Action charges.

According to court records, police officers responded on Aug. 15, on a reported shooting in Lee's Summit. On arrival, they contacted the juvenile victim, who was shot in the back. The victim was transported to the hospital. A witness told police that Brown was in confrontation with a group of people. That led to a chase and during that chase Brown fired a weapon from the vehicle into another vehicle. Detectives interviewed Brown who told them he fired up to eight shots from a vehicle. He stated he had no intention of hurting anyone but wanted to scare them. 

Prosecutors requested a bond of $75,000.
