March 7, 2018

A Kansas City man faces multiple felony charges, including the Class A felony charge of Assault 1st Degree, for firing on Tuesday at a KCPD officer who was performing his duty, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.

Dane A. Hill, dob: 12/06/1991, faces Assault 1st Degree, Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Resisting Arrest and three counts of Armed Criminal Action.*

According to court documents filed today, Kansas City police were watching a residence in the 2500 block of Chelsea Ave., when a vehicle slowed in front and a passenger in the vehicle stuck a firearm out the window and shot at the residence. The vehicle fled and police pursued. During the pursuit, a man leaned out the window and fired multiple shots at an undercover officer's unmarked vehicle. Shots struck the driver's side front bumper and a witness told police that the defendant was the person who fired shots from the vehicle. Hill told police he was in the vehicle and fired at the residence.

A second suspect was arrested and the case remains under investigation.

Prosecutors have requested a bond of $300,000.
