Second suspect charged in Missouri interstate shooting
INDEPENDENCE (AP) —
A second suspect has been charged in the shooting death of a man at a convenience store near Kansas City.
The Kansas City Star reported that 18-year-old Donovan James was charged Monday in Jackson County with second-degree murder, unlawful use of a weapon and armed criminal action. He's accused of firing shots from a vehicle at another vehicle.
The indictment comes two days after the county prosecutor's office charged 26-year-old Michael Dumas with second-degree murder and armed criminal action in the same investigation.
Court records said Phillip Anderson was found fatally shot Friday at a QuikTrip parking lot in Independence. Witnesses told police that they saw shots fired from two vehicles near Interstate 70.
Records show James and Dumas are being held at the Jackson County Detention Center. It's unclear whether the suspects have attorneys.
