Man, 65, Charged with Shooting of Friend
LEE’S SUMMIT, Mo. — A 65-year-old man has been charged in connection with the shooting outside a Lee’s Summit residence of another man on Sunday, an assault that left the victim seriously injured.
Ronald L. Hall faces Assault 1st Degree and Armed Criminal Action charges.
According to court records, Hall and other men were drinking at a Lee’s Summit residence, when Hall and another man began to argue. A witness told police he heard a loud noise and saw the victim fall to the ground. The witness then took the gun from Ronald Hall and Hall reportedly retreated back into the house in the 200 block of NE Orchard Street and refused to come out.
Police sent a robot inside the home to try to make contact with the suspect. They discovered that a two-month old infant was inside.
After about 4 hours, Hall surrendered to police and they located the infant in the front living room and arrested Hall.
The victim suffered a stroke and will likely have permanent injuries due to the shooting.
Prosecutors have requested a bond of $200,000 cash.
