Police: Drug Deal Resulted in Fatal Shooting
GLADSTONE (AP) — Police in a Kansas City suburb say a double shooting in an apartment complex that left one man dead was the result of a drug deal gone bad.
A source reports an 18-year-old Kansas City man has been charged with second-degree murder and armed criminal action in the shooting death of 23-year-old Ashton Gann early Friday morning in Gladstone.
Gann was found shot multiple times about 4 a.m. at the entryway of an apartment complex. An hour later police found a second man -- who was charged with killing Gann -- in the entryway of a separate building, also suffering from a gunshot wound.
Witnesses told police Gann and another man went into the apartment complex to participate in a cocaine deal.
The suspect was being held on $750,000 bond.
