17-year-old charged in drug-related killing in Kansas City
KANSAS CITY (AP) — A second teen has been charged in the drug-related shooting death of an 18-year-old in a neighborhood near Kansas City's Zona Rosa shopping area.
Seventeen-year-old Keith Spencer was charged Wednesday with second-degree murder, armed criminal action and attempted distribution of a controlled substance in the death of Tim Durden. No attorney is listed for him in online court records.
KMBC-TV reports that Durden died at a hospital after he was found wounded Monday behind the home of 17-year-old Dominic Pineda, who also is charged in the killing.
Pineda told investigators he was measuring out marijuana to sell when Durden grabbed a handgun from another person's pocket, loaded it and threatened to shoot. Court records say gunfire then erupted, with Durden and both suspects accused of shooting.
