Man Charged in Transitional-Living Facility Killing
A man who lives at a transitional-living facility in Kansas City has been charged with fatally shooting another resident.
Twenty-three-year-old Isiah Ferguson was charged Tuesday with first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the death of 20-year-old Samuel Cummins at an apartment complex operated by a nonprofit that provides services for addicts and people with mental illness.
Ferguson is jailed on $250,000 bond. No attorney is listed for him in online court records.
The shooting early Tuesday led to a three-hour standoff at the complex.
Ferguson also said he’s been diagnosed with schizophrenia and takes medicine for it.
