JUNCTION CITY, Mo. (AP) A Junction City man has been arrested on first-degree murder and aggravated battery charges in connection with an early morning shooting at a National Guard armory.
Police said the 33-year-old suspect was taken into custody at noon Saturday. He is accused of killing 25-year-old Antonio Maxwell and shooting 30-year-old Jamaica Chism, both of Junction City.
Police said the shooting happened at 3:51 a.m. Saturday at the armory, which had been rented out for an event that started at midnight and ended at 3 a.m.
Maxwell was pronounced dead at Geary Community Hospital. Chism was taken to a Topeka hospital, but no information on her condition was immediately available.
Kansas National Guard spokeswoman Sharon Watson said the armory had been rented by a private group and the guard was not involved.
