Grandview man charged in fatal shooting last Friday near 12th and White and other crimes

For Immediate Release
Nov. 7, 2023

A Grandview, MO, man has been charged in connection with a fatal shooting last Friday  in the area of 12th and White and other crimes, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.

Keith D. Adkins faces felony charges of Murder 2nd Degree, Assault 1st Degree, two counts of Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Resisting Arrest, two counts of Tampering with a Motor Vehicle 1st Degree and five counts of Armed Criminal Action.*

According to court records, Kansas City Police Department officers were dispatched to the 6000 block of E. 13th Street on a reported shooting. Upon arrival, officers found a juvenile victim in the street near a Kia Sportage. It had collided with a pole. The victim was transported to the hospital and died later; his death was ruled a homicide by the Jackson County Medical Examiner. A second victim was located behind a nearby residence. Video surveillance from the area showed the driver in a black Silverado leaning out of the driver's window and firing two shots at the Kia, which soon collided with the pole. Detectives tracked the truck and observed a male driver and female passenger, who later were identified. The male was the defendant. The next day detectives located the black Silverado, which had been reported stolen. Later on Nov. 4, the defendant and the female were identified as the driver and passenger in another stolen vehicle, a Hyundai. Officers pursued the stolen auto on Nov. 5, 2023. The Hyundai proceeded at high rates of speed and ignoring traffic controls, until it struck another vehicle. The defendant exited the vehicle and fled on foot until he was taken into custody.

Prosecutors requested a bond of $500,000 cash.
