Man charged with firing into car after wedding, killing 1

June 4, 2019

RAYTOWN, Mo. (AP) — A Missouri man has pleaded guilty to shooting up a car carrying four women from a wedding and killing one of them.

The Kansas City Star reports that 27-year-old Deandre Jackson, of Raytown, was convicted Monday of second-degree murder and nine other felonies in the November 2016 shooting that killed Maryanna Pennington and wounded three others.

Court records say their car broke down near a Kansas City cemetery after they left a wedding. They were calling for help when Jackson shot up the car. More than 30 shell casings were found at the scene.

A witness told police that Jackson’s girlfriend was in an altercation with Pennington a few hours before the shooting.

Jackson’s sentencing is set for Aug. 6.
