St. Joseph Carjacking

They say officers first responded to shots being fired in the area of 2916 Felix.

There they found a teenager who claimed he got into an argument with Mark Puckett of St. Joseph.

The teen said Pucket became upset he wasn't allowed to drive the car and shot it multiple times.

About 2 hours later officers took a report of a female who was driving two males home on the request of a friend.

That's when she says one of them- also believed to be Puckett- pulled out a handgun and ordered her out of the 2001 maroon Chevy Blazer… driving off with it.

Pucket has a lengthy past criminal record, including leaving the scene of an accident, domestic assault, violating a protection order, and illegal use of a weapon.

Police are asking anyone who's seen Puckett to call the police or tips hotline- that number is 238-TIPS.
