The Probable Cause Affidavit prepared by Detective Ben McIntire with the Plymouth Police Department on the Adams Street shooting on November 29th details the incidents of that evening.
Shortly after 8 a.m. the suspect, 20-year-old Dakota Young went to 818 Adams Street and knocked on the door. He said he was looking for the female occupant’s boyfriend who owed money to his cousin.
The female said the person he was looking for was not at the residence and told the Young to leave. At that time, he placed a gun in her face threatening her. A physical altercation ensued between the male suspect and the female. The female pushed to gun aside and was hit with the gun or fist in the side of the head. The fight continued into the front yard. The female said Young pointed the gun to the ground and fired. She was struck in the ankle and then another male came from the area of Young’s vehicle and grabbed him and told him to get out of there. They both fled in the vehicle.
Detective McIntyre was able to locate the victim’s “boyfriend” at about 11 p.m. and interviewed him.
A few days later a Plymouth Police Officer was contacted by an informant with information on the vehicle Dakota Young drives and the second male subject with him.
On December 1st a probation officer contacted Detective McIntyre and advised that she had been contacted by the mother of Young’s cousin to whom the money was owed to. She was able to provide additional information from the November 29th shooting incident.
License plate cameras were able to follow Young’s vehicle southbound on U.S. 31 on November 29th and 30th.
Detective McIntyre called Dakota Young’s cell phone and spoke to him. He told the detective he had been in Kentucky for the last 2 days and the detective told him he had him on camera in Plymouth and Indiana on November 29th and 30th. When asked when he was going to be back in Plymouth, he said he didn’t know because his truck was broke-down.
A trooper with the Kentucky State Police was informed of the situation and located Dakota Young and took him into custody, where he remains awaiting extradition back to Marshall County.
The Marshall County Prosecutor’s Office has charged Dakota Young with two counts of Robbery resulting in serious bodily injury as a level 2 felony, and one count of Aggravated Battery which is used when the assault causes serious permanent disfigurement as a level 3 felony. Young is also being charged with Criminal Recklessness as a level 5 felony and Pointing a Firearm at another which is a level 6 felony.
