A 19-year-old Kansas City man has been charged in the April 30 fatal shooting of 18-year-old Isabell Addison on Kansas City’s east side.
Charges filed against Anton L. Hunter include second-degree murder, unlawful use of a weapon, armed criminal action and failure to report a shooting, which is a misdemeanor. As of Friday night, he had not been arrested, the Jackson County prosecutor’s office said.
According to court records, a passenger in the car Addison was driving told police that they were stopped at a red light at the corner of Blue Parkway and Cleveland Avenue around 9:30 p.m. when the passenger in the black car next to them began shooting into Addison’s car.
The woman driving the black car later told police that she was Hunter’s girlfriend for about a year and did not know why he began shooting at the car next to them. Shortly before, she and Hunter had an argument over french fries.
Multiple shots were fired. Police found four shell casings at the scene and five in the car Hunter had been riding in.
Court records give no motive for the shooting. Family members of Addison theorized shortly after her death that she had been at the wrong place at the wrong time.
