For Immediate Release

Oct. 8, 2018

A suspect in a violent Sunday rampage that resulted in the fatal shootings of three persons in Kansas City and Raytown and injured others, including a 4-year-old child, faces18 felony counts, including three murder charges, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.

Issac J. Fisher, dob: 3/16/1983, faces three counts of Murder 2nd Degree, seven counts of Armed Criminal Action, two counts of Assault 1st Degree, two counts of Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Burglary 1st Degree, Stealing and two counts of Endangering the Welfare of a Child.*

"In the span of about 60 minutes on Sunday morning, the defendant went on a shooting spree," said Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker. "Three lives were lost, two others were wounded, including a child. Two additional children were nearly struck in the gunfire. This senseless violence also impacted a community of residents fearful of leaving their homes. Today, these charges may bring some peace back to our neighborhoods."

According to court records, police were first called to the 9000 block of Kentucky Avenue in Kansas City about 9:24 a.m. on a reported shooting. A woman reported her daughter-in-law had been shot by her son, the defendant. Witnesses at the residence told police that the defendant had arrived there and had argued with the first victim. Then the witness stated she heard four to five gunshots and found the victim on the bathroom floor suffering from gunshot wounds. The defendant was seen leaving the room holding a handgun. A short time later, police in Raytown located a vehicle reportedly taken from the first crime scene on Kentucky Avenue. A witness on Laurel Avenue in Raytown told police that her finance's brother was the defendant. He had come to the residence and kicked in the door before taking a second vehicle, a white Chevrolet Traverse. About 9:37 a.m. Sunday, police in Raytown responded to the 5700 block of Elm, where they found another victim suffering from gunshot wounds. That victim was reported to be the step-brother of the defendant. A 4-year-old girl also had been shot, while a 1-year-old was present but did not sustain injuries. A witness stated the suspect in the shooting was seen leaving the residence carrying a rifle over his shoulder. He fled in a white Traverse. And at 10;28 a.m., Kansas City police responded to a shooting near 112th and Eastern. The victim found there by police was reportedly a cousin of the defendant. While still alive, the victim told a witness that a man named "Big" had shot him. The defendant goes by the nickname "Big."  Police located the white Traverse behind a nearby residence. The headstamps on spent shell casings matched those found at the other crime scenes.

Prosecutors requested a $1 million cash bond for Fisher.
