KANSAS CITY, Mo (AP).– A Kansas City man has been charged with fatally shooting a man who was walking his dog when he apparently interrupted a vehicle break-in.
Prosecutors announced Tuesday that 25-year-old Malcolm Weston is charged with second-degree murder in the death of 51-year-old Ricardo Ortiz.
He was shot in the leg in November and died at a hospital.
His wife said he had been walking his dog before the shooting.
His sport utility vehicle was found parked in the street outside his home with the rear driver’s die window shattered.
Prosecutors requested a bond of $250,000 cash.
