Two more charged in Moberly shooting


Prosecutors have charged two more men in the Sunday shooting of a Moberly home.

Randolph County prosecutors charged Orlandeon Kirby and James Linebaugh on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively, with first-degree assault and armed criminal action in the shooting of a home on Harvest Lane.

Four people have been arrested in the shooting.

Kirby admitted to a friend that he fired shots from a vehicle at the Harvest Lane house, according to a probable cause statement. Kirby then admitted during police interrogation that he and the other three men went to the street with guns but no plans to use them after someone sold their friend a pill that was not the Adderall they wanted, according to the statement.

Kirby told police a truck struck the vehicle he and Linebaugh were in and a woman threw a hammer at them, so he fired warning shots into the air.

Another suspect told police that Linebaugh was driving the car Kirby was riding in, according to the statement. Witnesses said the shooting suspects were in two vehicles and that shots came from each vehicle, police wrote.

Two others, Jairee Holmes and Aaron Clay, were charged earlier this week.

Kirby was jailed on a $150,000 cash-only bond. It wasn't clear from court records whether Linebaugh had been arrested late Wednesday.
