A Columbia man who was accused of shooting a gun at a vehicle on March 20 in east Columbia pleaded to two charges on Monday.

Anthony Warren Jr., 20, appeared by in court by video from the Boone County Jail and pleaded guilty to shooting a gun at a motor vehicle and fourth-degree assault, a misdemeanor. A sentencing hearing is scheduled for 11 a.m. Monday, July 22. He is still being held at the jail.

Court documents in previous reporting state that Warren allegedly fired five shots from a handgun in a subdivision in the 5400 block of Volunteer Drive.

Neighbors at the scene had told ABC 17 News in March that they heard shots ring out, as well as roughly 10 people yelling before two women started fighting. A Columbia Police Department spokesperson said at the time that one woman had injuries, but not from gunfire.

Neighbors claimed one woman was screaming at another woman, who was across the street, previous reporting states. One of the women was allegedly heard by neighbors saying “you need to get out of here” to a man. Residents claimed that man then got into a vehicle with a woman and drove away.
