Oct. 15, 2019

A 29-year-old Raytown man has been charged with knowingly causing the death of Frankie Gilmore on Sunday by shooting him at a residence in the 8800 block of East 85th Street in Raytown, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.

Ebe Nelson, dob: 11/11/1989, faces Murder 1st Degree and Armed Criminal Action charges.*

According to court records, Raytown police officers responded Sunday early afternoon to the 8800 block of E. 85th Street and found the victim, Frankie Gilmore, in the front yard. He was deceased and had been shot multiple times. Witnesses identified the defendant as the shooter. He had fled the scene and had barricaded himself inside a residence in the 8500 block of Kentucky Avenue in Raytown. He later surrendered. Witnesses told police that the victim and the defendant had been in an argument over the family's dog in the backyard of the residence on 85th Street. The defendant had a history of causing problems and had been told to stay away from the residence, witnesses told police. The victim had a baseball bat due to the defendant's aggressive behavior, they added. The victim alerted the defendant's mother, who lives at the residence on 85th Street, to call police. The defendant had returned with a gun. The defendant shot Gilmore in the leg and grazed his face. The defendant's mother pleaded with him to leave. The defendant went to Gilmore's truck and pulled out a firearm, an M16 style rifle. He moved toward Gilmore and fired multiple shots at close range. Then he fled on foot.

Prosecutors requested a bond of $300,000 cash.
