KANSAS CITY, MO (AP) – Authorities say a Kansas City-area man has been charged with 18 felony counts in connection with about a dozen recent random highway shootings that have wounded three people.

Jackson County prosecutor Jean Peters Baker said at a news conference Friday that 27-year-old Mohammed Whitaker of Grandview was charged with two counts of shooting into a motor vehicle and injuring a person, seven counts of shooting into a motor vehicle and nine counts of armed criminal action.

At least six of the shootings occurred near Grandview. The Kansas City suburb is home to an area known as the Grandview Triangle, where three interstates and U.S. 50 intersect.

The last confirmed shooting believed to be connected to the case was reported April 6.

None of victims’ wounds was considered life-threatening.

    With all those counts against him, this guy is in BIG trouble!

    In fact, shooting into cars, wounding three people – I’ll be he’s going to get almost 5 YEARS PROBATION! LOL

    Can you see it coming? The NRA will probably come to his defense. He’s just practicing his god-given RIGHT, isn’t he? And it isn’t like he actually KILLED anybody, is it?

    So he’ll end up getting punished ALMOST as bad as someone caught with dirty pics of underage 16-year-old girls, or ALMOST as bad as a black caught selling a rock of crack, but not NEARLY as much time as the more serious crimes get, like making meth.

    How do I know this? It’s AMERICA!

    @byebyetotherite:
    That’s YOUR liberal judges and legal system giving a 5 year probation. Your caricature of the NRA is right out of the liberal playbook. Nobody condones this sort of activity.

      Another violent hood rat, attacking from a distance because they’re not man enough for face to face confrontation. Only a liberal like bye bye would try to deflect by blaming the NRA.NRA is all about law abiding citizens arming and protecting themselves from the vermin of society because of left wing pondscum.Lib judges let repeat offenders out all the time.Libs are the downfall of society, just like detroit.Unfortunately, adle minded lefty stewardesses like bye bye will never get it.They continue to badmouth the country that supports him. perhaps bye bye should use that EBT card for a one way ticket to russia to join the other commies.
