A Jefferson City man pleaded guilty in connection with a July 2021 shooting at Phillips 66 on Stadium Boulevard.

Latrell Batts pleaded guilty to two counts of second-degree assault.

Batts was originally charged with three counts of armed criminal action, two counts of first-degree assault, first-degree property damage and unlawful use of a weapon.

According to online court records, "the state advises the plea does justice to the citizens of Missouri."

The incident occurred at Phillips 66 on Stadium Boulevard, according to a Jefferson City Police Department probable cause statement.

Court documents reveal one person was shot through the thigh and another shot through the forearm.

Police say one person talked with Batts then threw a soda at him before Batts opened fire.

He turned himself into the police.
