CENTRALIA, IL — Centralia police continue to investigate shots fired last week in the 800 block of Haussler Street and have released the identity of a 26-year-old man they believe is connected with multiple shots that were fired at a vehicle. Jerod Young, also known as Jerod Simmons-Young of Centralia, is being sought for alleged aggravated discharge of a firearm and aggravated assault.
According to Centralia police, they arrived on the scene within two minutes and no one had been shot. The alleged victim reportedly told officers the gunshots were the result of an ongoing domestic dispute and were not random. She said she was in a vehicle when a man stepped out of a house on Haussler Street and fired four to five times but the car was not struck by the bullets.
