Salem Man Arrested in Connection to December Shooting in Mt. Vernon

MT. VERNON – Mt. Vernon police arrested a 41-year-old man Saturday morning in connection with a December shooting incident.

A $150,000 warrant was issued Thursday for Jonathan Stuckey in connection with a shooting incident around 3:18 p.m. December 13, 2021, in the 2600 block of Jones in Mt. Vernon.

According to Chief Trent Page, no one was struck in the incident but they believe shots were fired toward a person.

Page said people present at the time were uncooperative. But due to persistence in the investigation by Mt. Vernon police and with the assistance of the Jefferson County State’s Attorney’s Office, they were able to build a case, and charges were filed Thursday.

Stuckey is charged with Class X felony being an armed habitual criminal and Class 1 aggravated discharge of a firearm.

He was arrested on the warrant Saturday and taken to the Jefferson County Jail. It’s expected he’ll be arraigned on the charges in Jefferson County Court Monday.
