According to court records, Kansas City police responded the evening of Aug. 1, 2018 to the area of the 3600 block of Bridge Manor Drive on a shooting. They found a deceased man in front of a residence. Several shotgun shell casings were on the ground around the victim. Two other victims soon reported being wounded by a shooting. One victim told police he was in front of his residence when he was alerted to the suspect with a shotgun. A third victim told police he was driving by and saw the suspect shooting a victim. Then, the suspect turned the gun toward the third victim and fired, grazing him. Other witnesses reported to police seeing the suspect shooting a man who reportedly was walking on the sidewalk. A witness stated the suspect approached the victim felled by gunshot and hit him multiple times with the butt of the shotgun. Officers later located Hudson and he was transported to a local hospital as they believed he may have been intoxicated on PCP. Police searched a storm drain near the shooting and found the shotgun, with blood and human tissue still on it. The suspect recalled for police shooting at people with a shotgun, then throwing the gun into a nearby storm drain.
Prosecutors requested a bond of $500,000 cash.
