KCK PD SHOOT & KILL GUNMAN ARMED WITH ASSAULT RIFLE AT THE LEGENDS!!!
Roundup of today's drama at yet another failing taxpayer subsidized entertainment district . . .
Police say they were called to the Country Inn & Suites shortly before 10 a.m. after a report that a man had said he killed his wife, although police cannot confirm whether he committed a crime.
Police found the man near State Avenue and Village West Parkway. Police spokesman Officer Jonathon Westbrook said officers engaged with the suspect and the man pulled a rifle from the trunk of his car and fired at them.
Police fired back, killing the man. No police or bystanders were injured.
"KCTV5 News has learned the suspect has been identified as Charles Pearson."
FOX4's investigative team found a mugshot of Pearson and showed the witness, who said there was no doubt he was the man police shot and killed. Pearson told a hotel manager before the shootout that he killed his wife, was dangerous and that the manager needed to call police. Then the witness said he went out to a red Maserati and peeled out of the parking lot.
Pearson's wife, Sylvia Ann Ussery-Pearson, was reported missing on Tuesday morning. So far there's no official confirmation that she's dead, despite Charles Pearson making that claim.
