Two Brothers Confront Serious Charges After NKC High School Shooting

What stood out about this afternoon news more than anything else is that that the prosecutor seemed VERY SERIOUS about putting people on notice regarding gunplay in public spaces.

Clay County Prosecuting Attorney Zachary Thompson said the shooting started after a dispute between two groups of young men who were leaving a Missouri Class 6, District 8 basketball game between Staley and North Kansas City.

"No one should have to fear being shot when they go to a high school basketball game in Clay County; these events are meant to bring our community together," Thompson said. "My message to those who would come to our community, victimize our citizens, and endanger our citizens lives is that you will be held to account."
