Zachary Pearce, a 24-year-old man, was shot to death following an armed robbery late Sunday, December 4th, 2017. Pierce and his boyfriend were walking home from Westport to Zach’s apartment on the 100th block of west 40th Street, in Kansas City.
Pearce, who had been robbed before, tried to calm the gunman down and both he and Simmons complied and gave up their wallets and cellphones. That is when the gunman fired on them and fled, fatally wounding Pearce.
The man ran to a dark-colored SUV. Simmons saw a woman driving and another man in the SUV. Simmons said the gunman appeared to have dark skin, short hair and wore a hoodie.
Police are looking for this vehicle in connection to this case.
