The St. Joseph Police Department said 32-year-old Owen Lee Roberts is currently being held in the Jackson County Jail on unrelated charges. An arrest warrant for second-degree assault out of Buchanan County was issued last month for Roberts.

As we previously reported, Roberts was wanted in connection with the May 15th shooting of two St. Joseph residents in the area of 924 Prospect Ave. Capt. Jeff Wilson with the St. Joseph Police Department said Ricky Snedden and Terry Lee Madewell sustained serious injuries from the incident but both survived the assault.
