KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Police have identified a suspect arrested in a Kansas City shooting death following a police chase into Kansas last week.
Authorities say 36-year-old Eric Thomas, of Kansas City, Missouri, has been charged with second-degree murder and other counts in the Wednesday shooting death of 28-year-old Darren Marshall.
Marshall’s death was among three Kansas City homicides on Wednesday.
Police say Thomas was arrested some time later after officers spotted a vehicle matching the description of one being driven during the shooting.
Officers tried to stop the car, but it sped away and led police on a high-speed chase into Kansas while running red lights.
Police say Thomas was successfully stopped in Kansas and arrested.
