The Carroll County Attorney’s Office has filed felony charges against three teens, who allegedly took part an incident which occurred March 2nd, during which a gun was fired at a vehicle occupied by several people. According to court records, a 16-year old boy was charged with committing the delinquent act of intimidation with a dangerous weapon. The other boys, ages 14 and 16, were charged with committing the delinquent act of intimidation with a dangerous weapon and charged with aiding and abetting the shooting of a dangerous weapon at a vehicle occupied by several people. One of the teens lives in Carroll County, the other two are from Crawford County. The teens, who were identified as Tanner Bald, Keaton Otto and Colton Otto, were charged in Carroll County District Court’s Juvenile Division.
No one was hurt during the incident, but the charges allege the shooting did put the occupants of the vehicle at risk to suffer an injury. The Superintendent of the IKM-Manning Community Schools told KCCI TV in Des Moines, that none of the district’s students have been expelled or suspended due to the incident. The boys have since returned to school.
