Alleged shooter pleads guilty to November incident in Hannibal
Myron Mahaney pleaded guilty to the amended charge of unlawful use of a weapon by firing a gun into a dwelling.
Mahaney is one of the alleged shooters from a November 29, 2017 incident in Hannibal.
He was arrested and charged with Assault in the First Degree and Armed Criminal Action.
“The person who was shot in the arm that evening testified at preliminary hearing and positively identified that the co-defendant, Tion Dorsey, as the person who shot him. Initially it was unclear who fired the shot that struck the victim. There is no longer a factual basis to continue to charge Mahaney with assault and armed criminal action. Mahaney admitted to law enforcement to firing into the vacant house," stated Marion County Prosecuting Attorney David Clayton.
The E felony of unlawful use of a weapon caries a range of punishment up to 4 years in prison, up to one year in jail or a fine up to $10,000. Mahaney received the maximum of four years in prison on this charge.
Dorsey’s case remains pending as originally charged. He is also facing a probation revocation on a previous case this month.
