Miller County Sheriff's Department deputies arrested a man Saturday afternoon, believed to be connected to a shooting in Eldon.

Authorities took 18-year-old Eldon resident Devin Mckie in to custody in Jefferson City and charged him Saturday with two counts of first-degree assault and two counts of armed criminal action.

According to a news release, the shooting occurred Friday evening in the area of VFW Road in Miller County.

Officials with Lake Regional Hospital told the sheriff's office two patients were being treated with gunshot wounds. This led authorities to go to the hospital to obtain additional information about the incident.

A witness told authorities a physical altercation occurred between the suspect and victims. The fight allegedly escalated into the suspect shooting the victims multiple times.

Authorities were asking anyone with information on Mckie's whereabouts to contact the Miller County Sheriff's Office at (573) 369-2341 or (573) 552-7189 to remain anonymous.
