Byron L. Edwards, 23, faces charges of Robbery 1st Degree, Burglary 1st Degree and two counts of Armed Criminal Action.
According to court records, two men – one armed with an AK?47 and another with a handgun – kicked open the front door of a residence in the 8500 block of Everett about 9:30 a.m. and demanded money of the homeowners. After taking cash, they fled the home and a homeowner fired shots at the fleeing vehicle. Police tracked and located the vehicle, marked by bullet holes, at a Kansas City workplace. The operator of the vehicle told police that he had been given $20 to drive two men to commit the robbery.
The robbery remains under investigation.
Prosecutors have requested a $150,000 cash bond for Edwards.
