I wonder why there are so many shootings in America?
Is there a pattern I’m missing?
Oh, right – the Second Amendment.
Taliaferro Thompson, 20, was taken into custody on Wednesday in a joint collaboration of the Metro Area Fugitive Task Force along with the US Marshals Kansas City Task Force. A warrant for his arrest was issued in July.
Thompson is facing charges of first degree murder, two counts of use of a firearm to commit a felony and first degree assault.
Ashlyn Higgins, 23, and her boyfriend, Parris Stamps, 27, were shot in the early morning hours of January 26. They took private transportation to the hospital but police believe the shootings happened near 28th and Ruggles.
