A Kansas City man, already convicted of a felony, has been charged in connection with the firing of a gun on Wednesday morning at four city workers who were on duty near 8th and Olive, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.

Bertram L. Brown, dob: 9/15/1987, faces four counts of Assault in the 1st Degree, four counts of Armed Criminal Action and Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Stealing a Motor Vehicle and Possession of a Controlled Substance.*

Police responded about 7:30 Wednesday morning, according to court records filed today, to the area of 8th and Park. They found victims, city workers who had been at a job site in the area, when they heard shots being fired. The defendant was walking down the street. He yelled "Get off this corner," and pointed a firearm at the four victims. Brown fired about 8 to 9 shots from a handgun. He also jumped into a city dump truck, got out, then got into a city pickup and drove away. A witness saw the incident and identified the shooter as Brown, a convicted felon.
