KSAL Staff - January 4, 2016 10:43 am
A suspect was arrested on New Year’s Day in conjunction with three cases reported on New Year’s Eve and one incident earlier in the month near First Bank Kansas.
Joshua Blake, 18 of Salina, was the driver of a white Nissan truck that was reported by multiple witnesses as the source of shots being fired in multiple locations. The locations in question span all over Salina: University and Phillips, the intersection of Hageman and South, and the 400 block of South 12th Street where an occupied residence was shot at. After locating the vehicle at 12:41AM at the 900 block of Tulane, police arrested Blake and another passenger in the vehicle, 32-year-old Joseph Allen, who was arrested on narcotics charges.
Upon further investigation, police were able to charge Blake with the shooting on December 3 on Crawford near the First Bank of Kansas.
There were two other passengers in the vehicle who were not charged with anything, although more arrests are expected in this case.
Blake is being charged with six counts of unlawful discharge of a firearm at an occupied residence, ten counts of unlawful discharge of a firearm, four counts of damage to property and one count of driving without a license.
