The victim who was killed in a shooting that also injured four people in a popular Kansas City amusement park was just 17 years old, authorities say.
Police identified the teen on Monday as Devin Harris, and said three men injured in the Westport shooting in Kansas City, Missouri, are in stable condition. Two of them were in critical condition. A woman also suffered life-threatening injuries around 1:30 a.m. Saturday after being shot by the occupants of a sports vehicle.
Devon Carter, 25, of Kansas City, Kansas, has been jailed on a $ 150,000 bond on charges of illegal use of a firearm and armed crime during a shooting. According to court records, he told police he was driving the SUV after going to a Westport club with 30 friends and family for a birthday party. He told police there was an altercation with another group after he left the club, resulting in a shooting.
No attorneys refer to Carter in the court records online.
An off-duty police officer watched the shooting and fired his gun at the SUV. But Officer Doaa El-Ashkar also said Monday that an investigation found that the officer had not hit anyone. He said officers were still searching for other suspects, but gave no details.
