A man was charged with assault and other felonies on Monday after allegedly firing shots at deputies from a residence on Sadie Lane in Sedalia on Sunday.

Jonathan Parkhurst was charged with first-degree assault, armed criminal action and two counts of unlawful use of a weapon. A warrant was issued on Monday and a $250,000 bond was set. He was arrested on Sunday and placed on a 24-hour hold. A court date has not been set.

According to the probable cause statement, deputies were dispatched to a residence around 5:18 p.m. Sunday for a report of a domestic disturbance. Deputies called back the caller, who allegedly said Parkhurst was intoxicated. A Facebook post from Sheriff Brad Anders states that occurrence happened on Sadie Lane and no injuries were reported.

Deputies arrived to the residence and spoke with a woman, who said they would bring Parkhurst to the door, court documents say. Deputies then allegedly heard Parkhurst whistle three times before firing three shots near the deputies, court documents say.

Deputies then took cover and heard eight more shots fired during the standoff, court documents say. Anders wrote in his post that five shots were fired at deputies. Parkhurst was allegedly yelling “unintelligible statements.” Parkhurst had allegedly pointed the gun at the woman at one point in the encounter, the probable cause statement says.

Law enforcement then took cover in a nearby wooded area and were able to call Parkhurst, the statement says. Eventually, Anders was able to convince Parkhurst to surrender, the statement says.

The Pettis County Sheriff’s Office later executed a search at the residence and found shell casings and multiple guns, the statement says.
