A probable cause affidavit provides details about allegations against a man who is charged in connection to a Feb. 13 shooting in Easton.

The affidavit was prepared in the case of Daniel W. Owens, who faces a charge of attempted second-degree murder.

The document initially was sealed. But following a request by the Leavenworth Times, the affidavit was released with a few redactions made by District Judge Michael Gibbens.

The affidavit was prepared Feb. 15 by Cpl. Megan Mance of the Leavenworth County Sheriff’s Office.

According to the document, the victim, a 58-year-old man, was shot Feb. 13 at an Easton residence. He suffered wounds to his right hand, neck and behind his right ear.

The wounds reportedly caused broken bones and significant blood loss.

At the scene, the victim reportedly identified Owens as the man who allegedly shot him.

Detectives found two spent 9 mm shell casings at the scene, according to the affidavit.

The victim was transported by air ambulance to a hospital in Kansas City, Kansas.

A detective later interviewed the victim at the hospital. The man said he had not seen Owens for about a year. But the victim said the defendant came to his residence Feb. 12 and stayed for only a short time.

The victim told the detective that Owens returned to his home Feb. 13. The victim alleged that Owens pushed him onto a bed and started yelling, “Who else is here?”

The victim reported that he heard a “huge noise” and was unable to move, according to the affidavit.

Owens’ girlfriend told authorities that Owens allegedly had been using several different types of illegal drugs.

The girlfriend also reported that she noticed a 9 mm handgun was missing from her residence after Owens left there Feb. 11. She reported this incident to the Kansas City, Kansas, Police Department, according to the affidavit.

Owens, 43, was apprehended Feb. 15 in Lincoln, Nebraska, according to Leavenworth County Undersheriff Jim Sherley.

Owens is next scheduled to appear in court April 10.
