Camdenton, MO, 06-02-22 - Early Tuesday morning, 05-31-22, Camden County deputies responded to Blackberry Lane in Macks Creek for a shooting call. The caller informed Communications Officers a neighbor was firing a weapon into their house.


Deputies arrived to find damage to the outside of a residence consistent with impacting bullets. Deputies also observed damage to the inside of the residence including a ruptured water line which subsequently caused water damage to household items.


Deputies identified the shooter as Martin B Perez, 59, of Macks Creek. While speaking with deputies, Perez admitted to firing a weapon at a light on his property, but then ceased cooperating with the investigation.


Deputies then applied for and received a search warrant. During the service of the warrant, deputies recovered several firearms, spent shell casings, and other evidence consistent with the damage to the residence.
