Bank robbery, carjacking suspect shot by police in downtown KCMO charged in federal court
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Federal prosecutors say a Kansas City, Missouri, man shot by police last week has been charged with bank robbery and carjacking.
Twenty-nine-year-old Steven Marquain Davis is accused in a criminal complaint filed Tuesday of using a bomb to rob the Commerce Bank in Kansas City, Missouri.
The affidavit filed alleges Davis entered the bank Friday holding a remote control device and placed a duffel bag on the counter. Davis allegedly told the teller to “gimme everything.” The teller, believing the robber was referring to a bomb, placed $29,689 in the bag.
The complaint alleges Davis tried to get into three cars into the area before police arrived. He was wounded by police after allegedly pointing a gun at officers.
Agents later located an explosive device in the bank lobby.
