Details from a Huxley shooting that occurred in early March have emerged as four defendants who police say planned the incident have been arrested.
Aundrea Keeney, 22; Chay Potts, 20; and Justin Cox, 24 are charged with first-degree robbery assault. Montrell Ryan McClellan was charged with first-degree robbery, and intimidation with a dangerous weapon.
According to a criminal complaint, Potts, Cox, and McClellan were driving to the 100 block of National Drive in Huxley with Keeney as the driver of the vehicle just before 2 a.mn. on March 6.
Upon entering the apartment complex and arriving at the victim’s door, McClellan and Cox were both armed with “dangerous weapons,” court documents show. McClellan and Cox knocked on the victim’s door and the victim opened it. The defendants asked if a specific person was at the residence, according to the complaint.
The victim closed the door, and McClellan opened fire three times into the victim’s residence, hitting the door frame and breaking the front window. Bullets also struck a wall and couch inside, police said.
Huxley police Sgt. Joe Marchesano previously said he was working with the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation on the case, and the investigation is ongoing. He said he believes there are more parties they discovered that may be involved with the incident, and more arrests could be made.
Potts, Keeney and McClellan were arrested April 11 and taken to the Story County Jail. Cox was being held in Boone County Jail on unrelated charges, but was subsequently transferred to the Story County Jail.
Potts and Keeney are currently being held on $25,000 bond, and McClellan is being held on $35,000 bond. Cox was being held Wednesday on $50,000 bond.
