Man Charged With Amtrak Shooting Following Police Standoff
A Kansas City man has been charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of another man on an Amtrak train near Lee's Summit last month.
The Kansas City Star reports that 21-year-old Marquise Webb was arrested Monday following a four-hour armed standoff with police at a Kansas City apartment complex.
Webb was charged Tuesday with the murder count, vehicle hijacking, two counts of armed criminal action and a weapons count.
Prosecutors are requesting a $500,000 bond.
Webb is accused of fatally shooting 30-year-old Richie Aaron, of Independence, the night of Jan. 14. Aaron was on an Amtrak train and was shot as it pulled into a station at Lee's Summit.
The train continued on to Independence before Aaron was discovered injured. Medics pronounced him dead on the train.
Webb's phone records showed that he moved directly to Kansas City after the train stopped in Lee's Summit. And on Monday night, Lee's Summit and KC Police served a search warrant at an address connected with Webb's phone.
