A Kansas City, Kan., man has been charged with Murder in the 1st Degree in connection with  the Dec. 26, 2017 fatal shooting of Rosemarie Harmon, whose body was found near 6th and Spruce in Kansas City, MO, after she had been shot on the street, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today. 

Antoine Fielder, dob: 4/2/1988, faces Murder in the First Degree, two counts of Armed Criminal Action and Assault 1st Degree.*

According to court records, Kansas City, MO, police were dispatched to 610 Spruce in Kansas City regarding a shooting. They found a deceased woman and an injured man. Witnesses told police they heard shots and saw a dark four-door vehicle drive away. Then they saw the vehicle return and the suspect shot both victims. Surveillance video captured most of the shooting. The first victim approached the four-door vehicle. Then the victim, Harmon, dives behind a couch on the east side of the street. The second victim checks on the first victim. A minute later the vehicle returns. Shots are fired at the second victim before the shooter stands over the first victim and shoots her also. The vehicle then leaves.

Kansas City, Kan., detectives, according to court records, contacted Kansas City, MO police and informed them of information on the suspect related to homicides. KCK police had responded on Dec. 18, 2017 to the scene of a carjacking. A nine millimeter handgun was stolen in the incident. Later, the suspect was arrested and the stolen handgun was located under a seat. The gun recovered by KCK police was examined by the KCMO crime laboratory and was found to match the casings recovered at the scene of the homicide on Dec. 36, 2017 at 610 Spruce. A witness told police the defendant showed her news footage of murders he had committed including "Rosie's." He said he also "put...her man in the hospital."
