Shots fired at occupied Wentzville home

WENTZVILLE, Mo. (KSDK) – Two men and a juvenile are in custody after shots were fired into the window of an occupied home on Foster Drive Tuesday.

The victim said she heard a loud bang that sounded like a generator blowing up, and saw a red car with a white front quarter panel leaving the area. About 20 minutes later, she said she noticed that her front bedroom window was broken out and there appeared to be shotgun pellets embedded in the siding, according to police.

Surveillance video led police to the vehicle's owner, and when they reached the corresponding residence – located on Hickory Lane in O'Fallon, Mo. – they found 19-year-old Marquan Holliman hiding in the bedroom, according to a news release from the Wentzville Police Department.

Holliman was arrested and questioned, which led police to identify to other suspects. DeAndre Blevins, 19, and an unidentified juvenile suspect were then taken to the St. Charles County Juvenile Detention Center for questioning.

Holliman and Blevins are currently being held at the Wentzville Police Department, but are awaiting transfer to the St. Charles County Adult Detention Facility. Police say they face an unlawful use of a weapon charge, which could carry a $50,000 bond.

The juvenile is currently being held at the St. Charles County Detention Center.
