A 20-year-old Kansas City man has been charged in the shooting of two others early Saturday morning in Westport. Kevon A. Powell, dob: 1/10/1997, faces two counts of Assault 1st Degree and two counts of Armed Criminal Action.

Court records show an off-duty Kansas City police officer saw the defendant fire shots near Westport Road and Pennsylvania. After the officer saw Powell shoot at one victim, he drew his duty weapon and ordered the defendant to halt. But the defendant fled and officers chased him until he was taken into custody near 40th and Main Street.

Prosecutors requested a bond of $150,000.
