A 17-year-old is in custody for his role in a summer incident where shots were fired outside Manhattan’s Holiday Inn at the Campus.
RCPD says Marc Anthony Oliver was arrested Friday at Manhattan High School on a warrant for criminal use of a firearm and marijuana possession. Oliver reportedly discarded a bag of marijuana and a handgun inside while running away from a traffic stop in the early morning hours of July 31 in the 3100 block of Lundin Road. Officers were responding that morning after a report of possible shots fired in the hotel’s parking lot.
Oliver is being held at the North Central Kansas regional Juvenile Detention Facility in Junction City.
Oliver is one of three charged in connection. The others include 15-year-old Terriundis Toliver, 19-year-old Evan Megaw and 18-year-old Malachi Fielder. Toliver is accused of robbing a 17-year-old boy at gunpoint. A fourth suspect hasn’t been identified by police.
