According to court documents, Patrick Dailey, 23, of Parkville, Mo. received gunshot wounds to his head and leg when in an unknown intruder allegedly shot him. Authorities responded to an apartment on NW Hogan Drive at about 11:30 p.m. on Nov. 18, 2016 and arrived to find Dailey receiving treatment for non-life threatening injuries.

When deputies with the Platte County Sheriff’s Office, Dailey allegedly gave a false identity, according to court documents and his mother did the same, eventually admitting in an interview that her son told her to lie because he might have warrants out for his arrest.

According to a probable cause statement, an investigation showed that an unknown male forced entry into the residence to rob Dailey of narcotics he regularly sold at the address. Dailey allegedly told him he didn’t have the pills, and the man shot him.

Dailey declined to identify the suspect, according to court documents. He also claimed his residence had been burglarized the day before with an unknown male allegedly entering to look for drugs.

After obtaining a search warrant, authorities collected 335 Alprazolam pills (a Schedule IV controlled substance), glass smoking pipes, a digital scale, used syringes and other illegal items related to narcotics. A cell phone seized in the search contained photos with large quantities of pills, hashish, Butane Honey Oils (BHO) and drug paraphernalia.

The phone also contained screen shots of messages detailing weights and prices of narcotics, according to court documents.

Dailey has been charged with one count of possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell. The Platte County Sheriff’s Office issued a warrant for his arrest last week.
