Missouri shooting leads to arrests in Paducah, Massac

Staff report

A shooting in Missouri led to arrests Wednesday in Paducah and Metropolis.

After a multi-agency effort, two men were taken into custody. William Troy Jr., 33, of Paducah was charged with firearm-enhanced trafficking in marijuana, more than eight ounces; hindering prosecution or apprehension and possession of drug paraphernalia. The shooting suspect, Tommy Davis III, was arrested at a hotel in Metropolis, detective Ryan Norman of the McCracken County Sheriff's Department said in a news release.

Norman said the sheriff's department received information from other law enforcement agencies regarding an early morning shooting in Cape Girardeau. The Cape Girardeau Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration said they believed the suspect was in Paducah.

Detectives confirmed that Davis' vehicle was at a residence on Limerick Drive in Paducah and watched the house. They obtained a search warrant for the apartment, and the Cape Girardeau police obtained an arrest warrant for Davis, Norman said.

Police stopped Davis' vehicle after it was seen leaving the apartment around 1:18 p.m. The sheriff's department's special service team then searched the apartment. Davis was not inside, but they found more than two pounds of marijuana and an M4 .223 rifle with a 45 round magazine, along with other evidence of drug trafficking. Troy was arrested at that time.

Meanwhile, representatives from the Metropolis Police Department, the Cape Girardeau Police Department, the McCracken County Sheriff's Department, the DEA and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives collaborated in finding and arresting Davis. More charges are expected as the investigation continues, Norman added.

Anyone with information pertaining to drug crimes can contact the drug division at the sheriff's department at 270-448-1516 or 270-444-5175.
