Police interviewed the homeowner, who said that Ayers had been living in the home. Another witness told police that there was a confrontation before Ayers allegedly shot Green. That witness also said that Ayers gave him a gun to hide afterwards.

Prosecutors have asked for a $500,000 bond for Ayers, who is in the custody of Independence police.
