Richie T. Aaron was fatally shot Jan. 14, while the train was in Lee’s Summit.
According to court records, Lee’s Summit police were alerted to an armed carjacking behind Konrad’s in Lee’s Summit. About the same time, police also were alerted to a shooting on the Amtrak train and that the suspected shooter had left the train in Lee’s Summit.
The train continued on to Independence, where Aaron was pronounced dead.
On Monday night, Lee’s Summit and Kansas City police executed a search warrant at a Kansas City apartment. According to court documents, police said they saw Webb attempting to leave from the apartment’s rear leading to a standoff.
After more than four hours, authorities said Webb surrendered peacefully.
