By The Mercury

Police are searching for a person who reportedly shot a man at a Junction City club early Saturday morning.

Sgt. Trish Giordano of the Junction City Police Department said an officer made a routine traffic stop at 2:15 a.m. Saturday in the 500 block of west 11th Street.

The officer discovered that one of the vehicle’s occupants was suffering from two non life-threatening gunshot wounds — one to his shoulder and one to his head.

The victim was Kadarian Romez Jones, 23, of Junction City, according to a police report.

Jones said just before the traffic stop he had been shot by an unknown black male after a “disturbance” at The Factory, a club at 805 Grant Ave.

Jones was treated and released from Geary County Community Hospital.

Detectives are actively working the case and ask if anyone has any information on this case to please call Crime Stoppers at 785-762-8477.
