A father and two sons are in custody after a chase involving four vehicles and shots fired in southwest Iowa’s Adams and Union counties early this morning. Adams County Sheriff Alan Johannes says 19-year-old Logan Jenkins faces five counts of attempted murder and one count of going armed with intent.
His 22-year-old brother, Trenton, and 44-year-old father Eric Jenkins, all from Prescott, were both charged with five counts of assault while participating in a felony, following an incident which began in Adams County just before 1 A.M. and ended on Highway 34, on the outskirts of Creston.
Johannes says the trio were in three separate vehicles which were chasing another vehicle. During the chase, Logan allegedly fired multiple rounds from a rifle, some of the bullets from which struck the vehicle being chased. That vehicle was occupied by five people, all of whom were under the age of 18. None of persons in the vehicle being chased were injured.
The 3 Jenkins were being held in the Adams County Jail. The incident remains under investigation.
