(Hillsboro, Pevely) It’s no surprise that when there is an officer-involved shooting anywhere in Jefferson County, it is likely to turn into an “all hands on deck” situation. On November the 18th there was a domestic disturbance in Pevely in which a suspect and members of the Pevely Police Department traded gunfire, and the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office SWAT team was called in. Sheriff Dave Marshak says his department will nearly always get involved in any officer-involved shooting that occurs.
Sheriff Marshak says they will always support any local agency when called upon.
44-year-old Jason Gene Phillips was taken into custody with no injuries to Phillips or members of law enforcement. Phillips has been charged with two counts of Assault 1st Degree, two counts of Armed Criminal Action, and one count of Domestic Assault 2nd Degree and is currently being held at the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office Jail without bond.
