RAYTOWN, Mo. — A Kansas City teen has been charged with assault and armed criminal action after police say he was in the vehicle from which shots were fired into a group of teens. The gunfire wounded a Raytown teen on Thursday night, Oct 13th,

Adrian D. Theus, 17, was captured after fleeing the suspect vehicle, police say.

According to court documents, someone in a vehicle fired shots at a home at East 65th Terrace and Overton in Raytown. After fleeing police, the vehicle eventually was stopped in Kansas City after running over some stopsticks. Five males fled the vehicle. Two were captured, including the defendant. Witnesses told police Theus was one of two shooters in Raytown. The defendant told police he fired into a crowd because of an on-going feud between the two groups.

A group of teens, including the victim, a 16-year-old Raytown South student, went to the home at 65th and Overton, after a football game between Raytown South and Raytown High.


The case remains under investigation by Raytown police.
