Police Announce Charges In Grandview Shooting Death

GRANDVIEW, Mo. (AP) — A suspect arrested in the shooting death of a man whose body was found inside a crashed car in the Kansas City suburb of Grandview early this week has been charged in the crime, authorities said.

Prosecutors charged Davion Fugate, 21, of Grandview, with second-degree murder and armed criminal action in the death, the Kansas City Star reported.

Officers were called to the scene around 1:40 p.m. Sunday and found a vehicle that had crashed into a tree. Officers found the body of a 23-year-old man who had been driving inside the vehicle and said he had been shot several times. Police have not released the victim’s name.

Witnesses reported seeing Fugate shooting at the vehicle in his own driveway — about a block away from where the car crashed — and running down the street. One witness told police it looked like the man who fired at the car chased it down to make sure the driver was shot.

Investigators say a home surveillance video obtained by police showed Fugate running after the car firing more than a dozen times.

Fugate is being held on a $100,000 cash-only bond.
