DUNKLIN COUNTY, MO (KAIT) - A Southeast Missouri man was arrested after a shooting Friday evening near Kennett.

According to Dunklin County Sheriff Bob Holder, 23-year-old Timmy Lynn Burns, Jr. is charged with first degree assault, armed criminal action, and felon in possession of a firearm after a shooting occurred on Dunklin County Road 434 around 8 p.m.
