BLUE SPRINGS, Mo. — Two Kansas City men are charged for shooting at a Missouri State Highway Patrol trooper last month.
Chris Northcutt, 31, is charged with first-degree assault, armed criminal action, unlawful use of a weapon, resisting arrest, and tampering with physical evidence.
John P. Glock, Jr., 29, is charged with first-degree assault, armed criminal action, unlawful use of a weapon, resisting arrest, tampering with physical evidence, and tampering with a motor vehicle.
The highway patrol says the charges stem from a shooting near I-70 and Adams Dairy Parkway on Nov. 19.
A trooper tried to stop a truck for speeding on I-70 when someone inside the truck shot at him.
The trooper wasn’t injured in the shooting.
Investigators later found the truck abandoned at a motel.
Video surveillance showed three people in the truck when they left it at the motel, according to the criminal complaint.
The court document also shows investigators tracked the suspects to a hotel where they rented a room. One of the suspects used a license that identified him as John Glock. Investigators then used cell phone video showing Northcutt was in the truck when the trooper tried to stop it.
