OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Johnson County district attorney Steve Howe confirmed Thursday that a second person now faces charges in the shooting death of an Overland Park teenager.
Howe told FOX4 that the second person charged is a juvenile. Information about their identity is limited at this time. He did say the juvenile faces a first-degree murder charge as does Alan Hicks, who was arrested Wednesday.
Police found Workman dead inside his Overland Park apartment Jan. 23.
At the time of the shooting, neighbors told police they heard a gun go off inside the teenager’s apartment, which is near 80th and Farley. They also told police they saw two men running down the stairs.
Court documents providing further details of the allegations against either of the two charged have not been released yet.
Workman attended Olathe East High School and was finishing his education independently while working. His mother said he moved into the apartment just weeks before the shooting.
Hicks makes his first appearance in a Johnson County courtroom Thursday afternoon.
