KANSAS CITY, Mo. —April 22, 2019 by fox4kc Staff
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.
