Marquis D. Henderson, dob: 6/18/1996, and Travon Cross, 11/29/1991, each face Murder 2nd Degree.*

According to court  records, Kansas City police responded on Dec. 29, 2016 to 48th and Main Street on a reported shooting and found the victim, Hobby, dob: 1/16/1989, deceased from a gun shot wound, in the parking garage next to the Plaza Library. Video surveillance showed a Toyota Camry that police determined had been rented from Enterprise by Travon Cross. After obtaining a search warrant, a gun was found in the vehicle, located at Cross’ residence.
