Man Charged With Fatally Shooting Kansas City Teen In Car

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A 25-year-old Kansas City man is accused of shooting at two teenagers in a passing car, killing the driver.

Jackson County prosecutors say Tracy French is charged with second-degree murder, unlawful use of a weapon and two counts of armed criminal action.

He is accused of killing 17-year-old Deontae Campbell in April.

The Kansas City Star report s Campbell was found shot in the head before his car crashed into a storefront in south Kansas City.

A passenger told police he and Campbell had just left a nearby mall when French, who was standing in the street, shot at them.

French reportedly told investigators the teens robbed him and were chasing him, with one having a gun.

Police found no gun belonging to the teenagers.

Online records do not name an attorney for French.
