The community moved one step closer to breathing a sigh of relief as Police and the Jackson County Prosecutor’s office moved one step closer to solving the murder of a 3-year-old boy with the arrest and charges of the driver of the vehicle involved in the murder.
The Jackson County Prosecutor’s office filed first-degree murder charges, unlawful use of a weapon and two counts of armed criminal action charges against SirTerry L. Stevenson, 22, in the murder of Amorian Hale.
On May 31, Amorian was asleep in his bed when someone fired at least 20 rounds into the home located in the 6700 block of Walrond. The shooter fled in a vehicle that was allegedly driven by Stevenson. One of those bullets hit Amorian.
According to court records, Stevenson was in the vehicle with D’Shawn Marchbanks, when Marchbanks was shot and killed on January 30, in Grandview.
Information was received that the shooting on May 31, of Amorian, was in retaliation for the shooting of Marchbanks.
Witnesses in the area of the Walrond shooting told police a gold car was involved in the shooting.
On June 2, Stevenson led police on a chase in a gold car. His cell phone was shown to be in the area of the Walrond shooting about the same time that the shots were fired that killed Amorian.
