Man charged in shooting of gang members

KSAL StaffSeptember 21, 2014

A rural Joplin man previously charged with abandoning the corpse of a gang member faces new charges in the shooting of another gang member.

The Joplin Globe reports that 28-year-old Jared Prier was charged Friday in Newton County Circuit Court with assault and armed criminal action. Authorities allege he twice shot a man in the stomach and a fired a shot that nicked a woman’s hand last month. No attorney is listed for him in online court records.

Prier is a purported member of the Joplin Honkies, a gang that authorities say has white supremacist leanings.

Last month, Prier and a woman were charged with abandoning the corpse of Dennis Meyer. Meyer is believed to have died of a drug overdose while partying with Prier and the woman.
