Man found guilty of murder in 2017 Kansas City shooting
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – A Greenwood man has been convicted in the shooting death of a man in Kansas City.
The Kansas City Star reports 30-year-old Patrick Powell was convicted Thursday of first-degree murder and armed criminal action.
Prosecutors say he shot 52-year-old Rodney Thurber in November 2017. A witness told police Powell taunted Thurber while shooting him several times.
A woman who was with Powell after the killing, Caitlyn Riffle, is charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action. Her case is pending.
Court records say a witness told police the shooting occurred after a woman believed to be Riffle visited Thurber to retrieve a handgun.
Powell is scheduled to be sentenced May 10.
