Men Charged in Connection to Shooting That Left Teen Dead

From Raytown Police Dept

The Office of Jean Peters Baker, Jackson County Prosecuting Attorney, has charged two men in connection with a shooting that left a teen dead. Michael Richardson, an 18-year-old Kansas City man, was charged with Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, and Armed Criminal Action. Sean Hill Jr., a 21-year-old Grandview man, was charged with Unlawful Use of a Weapon and Armed Criminal Action. The charges stem from a shooting in Raytown on 06-30-2020, which left a teenage male dead.

From Jackson County Prosecutor

According to court records, Raytown police responded on June 30, 2020, to the 6200 block of Blue Ridge Boulevard on a reported shooting and found a deceased 15-year-old victim in the parking lot. A second person nearby was wounded by gunfire. Seven persons were soon found in a nearby vacant building. Video surveillance showed that three of them had tampered with evidence at the scene prior to Raytown Police arriving there. Richardson, who was among those in the vacant building, told police detectives that he discharged a weapon. Hill also acknowledged he had a gun and when asked about the shooting stated, “Don’t y’all shoot at …when they shoot at y’all? Ain’t that how it’s supposed to go?”

The fatal shooting of the 15-year-old victim and the wounding of another victim Tuesday night remain under investigation.
