Jan. 31, 2017

A Kansas City man has been charged in connection with a Raytown, MO., domestic assault on Saturday that later led police to surround a residence to arrest the suspect, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters  Baker announced today.

Myron T. Woods, dob: 3/10/1975, faces Domestic Assault 2nd Degree, Unlawful Use of a Weapon and Unlafal Possession of a Firearm.*

According to court records, Raytown police responded early in the morning Saturday to the 10400 block of E. 78th Street on a disturbance and found a bloody woman victim and a gun covered in blood on the porch. The victim reported being assaulted and was transported to the hospital for treatment. Officers observed someone moving inside but couldn't make contact with that person. The victim reported she had been in an argument with the defendant who had been using drugs at the residence. He struck her and beat her with the butt of a pistol until her face was bloody. She wrestled the gun from him and fired shots at Woods, possibly striking him.  She also stated Woods put a gun to her and attempted to fire it but it failed. She fled. Raytown activated its SWAT team to get the suspect out of the home. About 3 hours later they apprehended him after he refused to cooperate. They discovered he was suffering from gunshot wounds.

Prosecutors requested a $50,000 cash bond.
