Charges in Jan. 9 gun slaying

A 19-year-old Kansas City man has been charged in the Jan. 9, 2016, fatal shooting of Hollis Burgin III, whose body was found in the 3300 block of Bridge Manor Drive, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.

Timothy A. Stanfield, dob: 2/6/1996, faces Murder in the 2nd Degree and Armed Criminal Action charges.*

According to court records, police found the victim in a white Lincoln suffering from a gunshot wound. A witness told police that the victim was set to meet someone and drove to a parking lot, parked and called the phone number of the person he expected to meet. The suspect met the victim, who sat behind him in the car and drove them to an ATM. After they drove back to the parking lot on Bridge Manor Drive, the suspect shot the victim once in the head and fled the scene. Police checked the victim’s cell phones and connected the phone number to an email address that belongs to the defendant. In addition, surveillance video of the ATM showed a person in clothing similar to what the defendant was wearing when he was taken into custody. Shown the defendant’s photo, a witness also identified the suspect as the shooter.

Prosecutors have requested a bond of $200,000.

Please see attached documents.

*Charges are only accusations and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until the defendant is either found guilty or has pleaded.
