Prosecutors have charged a pair of Grandview teens in connection wthree drive-by shootings at homes in the last week in Blue Springs and Lee’s Summit.
Chance Boles, 19, and Atianna Chavez, 18, each face three counts of unlawful use of a weapon and three counts of armed criminal action.
The shootings happened Friday and Tuesday at the 1000 block of Southwest Speas Drive in Blue Springs shortly before 8 p.m.; and Monday in the 1900 block of Southeast Seventh Street in Lee's Summit shortly before 10 a.m.
In each case the home was occupied, though no one was wounded. Investigators recovered 17 shell casings from the second shooting in Blue Springs and 19 from the shooting in Lee's Summit.
According to court documents, Chavez admitted to being involved in three shootings with Boles and said she got an adrenaline high from shooting a gun, while Boles denied involvement. One of the shooting victims received threats on social media from an account linked to Boles, and another victim said he had tried to buy some marijuana from Chavez and Boles didn’t like how the man talked to Chavez.
A license plate noted by a witness as the suspect vehicle left the Lee's Summit scene came back to Chavez, who said she drove Boles to the shootings. Chavez said she hid the guns at a friend's home in Kansas City, where investigators recovered them.
Blue Springs, Grandview and Lee's Summit police all assisted with the investigation. Prosecutors requested $100,000 cash bonds for each defendant.
