In the early hours of December 16 at 2:30 am, officers were dispatched to the 500 block of Moon Dr. in response to a reported domestic disturbance. Upon reaching the location, officers reportedly discovered a 25-year-old male with a gunshot wound to the arm. Simultaneously, it was brought to their attention that a 26-year-old male had arrived at SRHC with a gunshot wound to the abdomen.

Upon further investigation, it was revealed that the 26-year-old had been involved in a possible disturbance at a residence in the vicinity, involving 30-year-old Victor Phanthakeo. The 25-year-old victim intervened, attempting to separate the 26-year-old from the altercation, at which point Phanthakeo allegedly brandished a firearm and shot the 26-year-old. The trajectory of the bullet resulted in an additional injury to the arm of the 25-year-old.

Phanthakeo was arrested at the scene and is now facing requested charges of Attempted 2nd Degree Murder and Aggravated Battery.
