For Immediate Release
Nov. 28, 2023

A Jackson County judge sentenced a Kansas City man Monday to 25 years in state prison for the fatal shooting of a Kansas City man in June 2022, as well as the wounding of a female victim, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced. 

Andrew Young, 30, pleaded guilty earlier this year Murder 2nd Degree, Assault in the 1st Degree and two counts of Armed Criminal Action. As part of a plea agreement, the defendant was sentenced to 22 years on the Murder 2nd Degree and Assault convictions, while three more years were added for the Armed Criminal Action convictions. The total sentence was 25 years. 

According to court records, Kansas City police officers responded to the 4500 block of Colonial Terrace on a reported shooting. A woman victim told them she had been struck by gunfire and officers found a second victim deceased in the residence. The woman stated the deceased victim had been involved in a car deal with a man who arrived at the residence and fired shots at both, wounding the woman and fatally wounding the man. While at the residence, the defendant drank a beer, which detectives were able to connect to the defendant through DNA. Phone records and the defendant himself subsequently confirmed that the two were communicating about selling a car.
