Women issue plea for information on shooting that wounded them, and killed another

Two victims of gun violence in Kansas City are asking for anyone with information to come forward.

A Raytown man has been charged with last November’s shooting that killed a young mother – and changed three other lives. But the case is far from closed.

At least three of the women shot are mothers – one leaves behind three children. The others are living with physical disabilities now, and they’re adamant about finding the other people responsible for their pain.

“That was the last picture me and my sister took together.”

Marsheanna Clark is now sister-less – and motionless from the chest down.

“No feeling. I have a catheter bag that I’ve been dragging around for 7 months.”

Marsheanna and her friend Myesha Miller are scarred beyond the surface.

“I got nerve damage in my wrist,” said Myesha. “And I have a 6-year-old daughter and I can’t do nothing for them.”

The pair and two others were in a car that broke down near 21st and Cleveland last November – that’s when police say Deandre Jackson opened fire.

“I was in the front passenger seat,” said Marsheanna. “The car broke down and probably five minutes later I was getting pulled out the car – shot.”

Clark’s sister Maryanna Pennington was killed. They say it was all over a fight with a girl.

“We take care of her kids also. Which I can’t provide or do anything for them either,” said Marsheanna.

“I could see if they had a fight and they fought again, but for you to just shoot us…” said Myesha, “for nothing. Couldn’t even give us a chance to get out of the car.”

Police say there are others who might also be responsible.

“He wasn’t the only one,” said Myesha. “They need to come forward. Like the person that got on the window before he even got there.”

They need witnesses to speak up.

The women believe up to six others might know something about their shooting. If you have any information that could lead to an arrest you are asked to call the TIPS Hotline.
