Police: Chinese missionary fatally shot in Kansas City
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Police say a Chinese missionary who had just arrived in Kansas City this week was shot to death for no apparent reason by an 18-year-old who went on a shooting spree while high on drugs.
The Kansas City Star reports the victim, Xindong Hao, was shot Wednesday while taking a walk. Prosecutors charged Curtail Hudson on Thursday with second-degree murder. Court documents indicate investigators believe Hudson was high on PCP when he started shooting at people in a south Kansas City neighborhood where Hao happened to be walking.
Hao brought his wife and four children to Kansas City to join fellow missionaries at the International House of Prayer.
