Boone County prosecutors charged one man in connection with a weekend shooting at a residence on Jacobs Place.

Jeremiah Hackney, 18, of Columbia, faces multiple felony charges linked to the shooting, which damaged a door.

Police responded to a disturbance at an apartment building in the 2600 block of Jacobs Place around 2:16 p.m. Sunday afternoon.

A witness told police Hackney broke into the residence by getting through a basement door.

The witness tried to pepper spray Hackney when he attempted to enter an upstairs bedroom, Hackney's probable cause statement said. Documents say the spray hit Hackney in the back.

Hackney was standing on a stairwell landing when he allegedly took out a handgun and fired into the bedroom door, the witness told police.

Police say a shell casing was found at the scene, however, no injuries were reported.

The probable cause statement said Hackney was the respondent of a protection order for someone living in the apartment. Documents said Hackney was ordered not to enter or be on the premises where the petitioner lives and not to be within 500 feet of the petitioner or the petitioner's children.

As of Monday afternoon, Hackney was being held in the Boone County Jail without bond.

Hackney faces a felony count each of first-degree domestic assault, armed criminal action and first-degree burglary.
