Raytown Bank Robbed

Raytown Police were called to the scene of a reported bank robbery at the Bank of America on 63rd St. at about 1:19 p.m. Friday afternoon (09/11/2015). A lone, unshaven, light-complected black man in his thirties, carrying a brown accordion folder passed a note to a teller demanding money. No weapon was displayed and no injuries were reported. The man was described as having an average build; about 5’ 8” to 5’ 10” tall; wearing wire framed glasses, a Kansas City Chief’s ball cap, and a long sleeved grey hoodie. He fled the bank on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash. The Federal Bureau of Investigation has assumed the investigation.

Police would like anyone with information about this or any other crime to call the TIPS hotline at (816) 474-TIPS (8477).

Police Release Video of Car Wanted in Homicide Investigation

suspect-vehicle-still

Raytown Police have identified the victim of yesterday’s shooting as 31 year old Danny L. Dean of Kansas City, Kansas.  Dean was shot in a parking lot at the corner of 66th Terr. and Raytown Rd. Thursday evening (09/10/2015) just before 6:00 p.m.  A plain clothed policeman heard the shots from across the street where there was also an ambulance crew.  Officers and paramedics were on the scene almost immediately and Dean was very quickly removed to an area hospital, but was pronounced dead.

Police believe that there were groups of people that met in the parking lot that evening for what investigators believe was some sort of criminal enterprise.   After some talking and visits back and forth between the various cars, the business ended abruptly with Dean being shot by someone from one of the other cars.  Police have the car in which Dean arrived and have identified those that arrived in it.  Another car was seen leaving the scene of the incident and was captured in this bit of surveillance video:

 

Shooting in Raytown Quickly Becomes Homicide Case

raytown-police-looking-for-graphic-designer-to-design-new-logo-patchRaytown Police are at the scene of shooting in a parking lot at 66th Terr. and Raytown Rd. A few minutes before 6:00 p.m. this evening, a plain clothed officer in a nearby building radioed for patrol cars to meet him there where he had just heard the sound of shots. At about the same time, dispatchers were receiving a call of gunfire in the parking lot. The plain clothed officer radioed that a light grey or silver car with a “boxy” rear end appeared to be fleeing the scene and was last seen eastbound on 67th St. As Officers arrived it was reported that one man was shot and lying in the parking lot. That man was taken from the scene to an area hospital and pronounced dead shortly thereafter. The victim has not been identified.

Police say that it appears that the fleeing car, or one like it, had been in contact with the victim in the parking lot. It was reportedly occupied by at least three persons, and possibly more. Witnesses tell police that all of the persons involved appeared to be in their twenties, were black, and included both male and female. Any one with information about this, or any other crime are asked to call the TIPS Hotline at (816) 474-TIPS (8477).

Two patrol cars were damaged in a non-injury collision while responding to the call.

Raytown Grad Brandon Robertson Rescues Child

A son of Raytown made the news recently by rescuing a child trapped in a hot car with his bare hands. Many of us remember Brandon as a lineman for Raytown South and before that a lineman for the Raytown Sports Association team the Giants. Well we now have something else to remember about Brandon, that he was willing to ignore pain to punch out a car window and rescue a child trapped in 90+ weather.
