Men face robbery, burglary charges
Leavenworth County man who suffered a gunshot wound last week now faces robbery and burglary charges in Wyandotte County.
Lt. George Collins with the Bonner Springs Police Department said Monday that the wounded man was one of four facing charges stemming from an attempted burglary about 10 p.m. last Tuesday near the Wyandotte-Leavenworth county line.
The homeowner shot at one of the four men who allegedly attempted to break into his home, Collins said.
Collins declined to specify which of the four men allegedly involved in the incident was shot.
Three of the men, Dustin M. Coleman, 18, Bonner Springs, and Jeremiah L. Smith, 22, and Dennis R. Musick, 23, both of Tonganoxie, were not listed as patients at Kansas University Hospital on Monday. A hospital official said he could neither confirm nor deny that the fourth man — Jason A. Marks, 24, Tonganoxie — was a patient.
All four men are charged with conspiracy to commit robbery, attempted aggravated robbery and aggravated burglary.
An investigation into the shooting began after a wounded man was dropped off at his father’s Tonganoxie home by three other men. The father took his son to a Tonganoxie ambulance station, and he then was taken to KU Hospital.
