A man is accused of shooting another man in the leg while he was riding a scooter in Mississippi County. Desmond Greer was charged with first degree assault, armed criminal action, unlawful possession of a firearm and unlawful use of a weapon. His bond was set at $250,000 cash only. Mississippi County Sheriff Keith Moore says the investigation began on April 2 when a man was shot in the lower leg. The victim says he was approached by Greer while riding his scooter. When he stopped to see what Greer wanted, Greer allegedly pulled a gun out of his pocket and shot him in the leg. The victim told deputies he then fled across a vacant lot, but was shot at two more times. Sheriff Moore says the victim was flown to an area hospital for treatment. He says Greer had left the scene by the time deputies arrived. Greer was later found by the Sikeston Department of Public Safety at a home in Sikeston. He is being held at the Mississippi County Detention Center.
