How ironic that this crime occurred in Independence, Missouri.
Had we kept blacks as slaves and not given them their “independence,” this white person – and the millions of other victims just like her – would still be alive.
An 18-year-old Oak Grove man has been charged in the fatal shooting of a woman in Independence.
David A. Harris was charged Wednesday for second degree murder, first degree assault and two counts of armed criminal action, according to Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker.
Independence police responded to the Cedar Brooke Apartments, located in the 1100 block of Quail Creek Drive Tuesday morning on reports of shots fired.
According to court records, while at the scene, officers heard yelling and through a window they saw the homicide victim, identified as 20-year-old Mary Schmitz, on the floor in the dining room. Police also found a 21-year-old man in a bedroom with a gunshot wound. He was taken to an area hospital with life threatening injuries.
Police also said a German Shepherd had been killed.
