Crittenden Teen Formally Charged for Attack on Trooper

MARCH 16, 2006 - Posted at 7:55 a.m. CST

 

SHEARERVILLE, MO - A 17-year-old who was wounded by a state trooper after the youth allegedly attacked two law officers in Crittenden County has been charged as an adult. 

Allen Dewayne Gann was shot in the leg by the trooper on Sunday after he threatened the trooper with an ax.  Before that attack, he allegedly threw a sledgehammer into the side window of a Crittenden County sheriff deputy's cruiser.

Gann was treated at a hospital and then placed into custody.

Authorities were called to the home by a neighbor who reported Gann was chasing his grandmother with the ax.  Police say the altercation began when the grandmother would not let Gann play a video game.

Trooper Matt Roberson fired his .45-caliber weapon twice, hitting Gann once in the right thigh.

Gann was charged with two counts of aggravated assault and domestic battery.  He was being held in the Crittenden County Jail in lieu of $50,000 bond.
