Charges Filed in Greenwood Drive-By

A man who allegedly opened fire on a Greenwood apartment building last month is now facing drive-by shooting charges.

Prosecutors allege Vaa Ta’ase, 34, fired at a third floor apartment on 105th and Greenwood in the early morning hours of May 15th following a fight at a party.

Court records say Ta’ase knocked another man unconscious earlier in the evening after the man accused him of stealing a co-worker’s cellphone. Several hours later, Ta’ase and the other man exchanged words over the phone before, prosecutors say, Ta’ase showed up outside of the man’s apartment building and fired off six rounds. No one was injured in the shooting.

Police later tracked down Ta’ase’s vehicle and found several shell casings inside.

Prosecutors say Ta’ase has previous convictions for unlawful possession of a firearm, assault, auto theft, DUI, disorderly conduct, hit and run, reckless and negligent driving.
