Prosecutors charge man in connection with Fulton shooting, chase


Prosecutors charged a man Monday in connection with a shooting at a gas station in Fulton on Friday night.

Callaway County deputies arrested Markus Berry, 27, of Auxvasse after a chase Saturday night in connection with the shooting.

According to a probable cause statement, shots were fired after a fist fight in the parking lot of Break Time on 4th Street around 9:15 p.m. Documents said Berry and another person got into a fist fight in the parking lot. Several other people were also there at the time. A witness told police that everyone left, but came back a short time later and Berry started shooting.

Court documents said deputies conducted surveillance on Saturday after they were notified that Berry was wanted by the Fulton Police Department.

Authorities said they noticed a vehicle in the area speed away in reverse. The deputy chased the vehicle and said it drove on the wrong side of the road several times. At one point, the vehicle went through a yard on Scotland Lane, according to court documents. The vehicle struck a tree and the driver ran away, leading to a 90-minute manhunt, authorities said.

Deputies arrested Berry after they found him hiding near a fence. Berry had meth on him at the the time of the arrest, according to the probable cause statement.

Prosecutors charged Berry with six felonies and one misdemeanor, including assault, armed criminal action and resisting arrest.

Court documents said Berry has previously been convicted of assault, statutory sodomy, and tampering with physical evidence.
