Kansas City teen charged in fatal shooting during drug deal
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Prosecutors said a teenager fatally shot one man and wounded another during a Kansas City drug deal.
The Kansas City Star reported Jewell Jones Jr., of Kansas City was charged Wednesday with second-degree murder in the death of Warren Banks. Jones also faced one count each of first-degree robbery and first-degree assault and three counts of armed criminal action. No attorney was listed for Jones in online court records.
Court records said Jones agreed to purchase marijuana from Banks last week. The victim who survived the shooting told police that gunfire erupted after Jones got into a vehicle with him and Banks and announced a robbery.
Court records said Jones fled and later told a witness he had shot at two men in a vehicle.
