Kansas City: Is There Another Beltway Shooter?

Caught: Mohammed Whitaker, 27, of Grandview, Missouri,  has been charged with 18 felony counts in connection with about a dozen recent highway shootings that have wounded three people
27 year old man is accused of shooting at vehicles around Kansas City. The shooter would target Interstate 435 and roads near the beltway.

Kansas City metro area was on the edge of a possible beltway shooter.

Around the Interstate 435 beltway and Interstate 470 near Independence, one man posed a threat to the motorists.

The FBI and Kansas City police finally got a break.

Mohammed Pedro Whitaker has been identified as the alleged Kansas City highway shooter and has been charged with 18 felonies from 9 separate incidents around the city metro region.

Whitaker is held on a million bond.

He's going to face at least 25 to life in the iron college for this crime. Although he didn't kill anyone, he did injure people and done criminal mischief. He also fired on federally paid highways.

Police Chief Darryl Forte said at a news conference that the suspect is male and lives in Grandview, a suburb south of the city that is home to the Grandview Triangle, where several highways intersect and where at least six of the reported shootings happened.
An unnamed suspect has been taken into custody in connection with a string of random highway shootings that left three people wounded in the Kansas City, Missouri, area.
Looks like he has no remorse for the actions.
Forte didn’t release the name or age of the suspect. The media would later announce the name. The chief is hoping to discuss the case in further detail at a news conference Friday.

“We’re here now to basically let people know someone has been apprehended,” an upbeat Forte told reporters at an impromptu news conference about 50 yards from a house where the suspect was taken into custody earlier in the day. “I wanted to make sure the residents and those who travel through Kansas City know they’re safe. They’ve been safe the whole time.”

Investigators could be seen searching the single-story four-plex Thursday night, and a tow truck hauled away a green Dodge Neon that was parked behind house, which is about two blocks from Interstate 49 and south of the Grandview Triangle.
The shooter's area span into Missouri and Kansas. Mohammed Whitaker is charged with felonious assault with a deadly weapon.
Forte said the Jackson County prosecutor’s office would determine if there is enough evidence to warrant pressing formal charges.

Detectives and analysts started noticing a pattern two weeks ago after reports of random shootings started coming in. Earlier this week, investigators were looking into about 20 reports of shootings, but that number has fluctuated as some reports were cleared and others came in.
Blindsided: His father said he had no idea his son could even fire a gun
The nice guys. The most dangerous people to ever hold a gun.
Late last week, police said they had connected a dozen shootings to the same person. Forte has said little to this point about how the shootings were linked or what kind of vehicle the suspect drove.

Two of the wounded drivers were shot in the leg and the third was shot in the arm. None of their wounds were considered life-threatening.

Just this week, a White extremist went on a rampage in Overland Park, KS. He ended up killing three individuals. Glenn Frazier Miller (Cross) was a perennial candidate for office. He had notorious ties to the White extremist movement.

He thought he would take out the Jews.

These two men have stirred the pot of extremism. The Southern Poverty Law Center have determined that hate groups are on the rise and its just a matter of time before we see another event happen in America.

The agitators of the media have stroked up extremism. As you can tell, Loserville and the racist right has now a reason to point to the scary Muslims. Also since he's apparently a Black man, it's another one of Obama's sons. Breitfart or The Daily Nothing will automatically assume this man is an Obama supporter or liberal activist.

Cliven Bundy and his feud with the Bureau of Land Management has gotten major airplay and it's potentially another event in which the right wing militias will take arms against federal authorities.

This event and the shooting in Overland Park are precursor of extremism in America.

Some facts about the Kansas City metro area. The population of the city is 483,000.

The city's metro area includes Kansas City, Kansas, Raytown, Lee's Summit, Overland Park, Independence, North Kansas City, Gladstone, Olathe, and Liberty.

Interstates 29, 35, 49 and 70 are the primary highways through the city. Interstate 435 serves as the beltway through Kansas City. Other highways include Interstates 470, 670, and 635 which serve as bypasses around the metro area.
