A 25-year-old Blue Springs man is facing multiple charges in connection to a deadly shooting in Kansas City, Missouri. Jonathan S. Lowrey has been charged with second degree murder, armed criminal action and tampering with a motor vehicle in connection to the shooting death of Joseph Corum, according to Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Baker.
According to court documents, just after 2:30 a.m. on March 28, officers responded to a shooting near 24th and Lister Ave. When officers arrived at the scene they found 30-year-old Joseph Corum dead on the floor. A witness said she was inside the home and heard the victim yelling at someone outside. She then heard two gunshot and then heard a vehicle driving away.
Another witness reported to police she woke up and saw Corum arguing with Lowrey in front of the home. She reported seeing Lowrey go to his vehicle, remove a long gun and shoot Corum three times and then leave. She then reported to 911.
Another witness provided video from her surveillance system showing Lowrey sitting in the van. She stated he had five tally marks on his face which he stated was a “body count.”
Lowrey was arrested last Thursday for questioning. The detective noticed the six tally marks tattooed under his right eye. Also, DNA taken from shell casings recovered at the crime scene was matched to Lowrey. Prosecutors have requested a cash bond of $250,000.
Update - Police said they are hoping home surveillance video will help them find the suspect involved in the deadly shooting. Police said they got a call from a woman around 2:30 a.m. who reported someone shot her boyfriend.
She told police her boyfriend was arguing with someone in the front yard when she heard gunfire. She didn’t know who he was arguing with. A few moments later, her boyfriend stumbled into the house and died. Investigators found a gun in the front yard along with a couple of shell casings.

Suspect killed and St. Louis officer injured after shootout in Midtown St. Louis
Jack Hammer – We are often told by mush-mouth city officials that “St. Louis has a Gun Problem”. Wrong! St. Louis has a Felon in Possession of a firearm problem. The problem must be accurately described in order to find the correct solution. Remove the violent criminals from the streets and guess what? Crime rate drops.
June 6, 2019 ST. LOUIS (by KMOV4 CBS Staff ) – A fugitive wanted by US Marshals was killed while exchanging gunfire with St. Louis police officers Thursday afternoon. St. Louis Police Chief John Hayden identified the outlaw as, Rodnell Cotton, age 26 (see photo below). Chief Hayden said the US Marshals Service contacted St. Louis police about assisting in taking a suspect (Cotton) into custody. Cotton was considered armed and dangerous; he had a federal weapons charge and homicide warrant out for his arrest.
Officers spotted the suspect driving a car with stolen license tags on Martin Luther King Drive near the Vandeventer area. The police deployed a tire-deflation device to stop the vehicle. Police said the suspect vehicle sped away after hitting the device, but did not get far on a flat tire. He lost control and hit a curb at Theresa St. and Sam Shepard Drive. The car came to a stop; the suspect bolted out of the car with a duffel bag and began to run from the police. The suspect was pursued by two SLP officers.
According to police, the suspect turned and fired his weapon, striking a St. Louis police sergeant in the thigh of his leg. The second police officer exchanged gunfire with the suspect, killing him and ending the gunfight. According to a police spokesman, authorities confiscated two illegal firearms from the scene. The weapons in possession by Cotton were described as a loaded .40 caliber Taurus semi-auto pistol with a live cartridge in the chamber and three in the magazine. Also recovered was a loaded .223 Bushmaster AR-style pistol with a bullet in the chamber and a drum magazine with 60 live rounds inside the suspect’s bag at that scene.
Jeff Roorda with the Police Officer's Association applauds the quick-thinking of the officers on the scene for applying two tourniquets on the injured officer. "I heard it straight from the wounded sergeant; one of the SL officers and US Marshals applied a tourniquet and did it right, which is not always the way it happens," Roorda said. "That saved his life. He was bleeding heavily until the tourniquet.”
The suspect, Rodnell Cotton, was pronounced dead at the scene. The wounded officer was taken to the hospital and currently is in critical yet stable condition.
