A 30-year-old Kansas City man was charged Monday with first-degree assault for allegedly shooting a woman in the back.

Derrick Stephen Day is also charged with armed criminal action and possession of methamphetamine.

According to court documents, Day drove behind the victim in her vehicle on July 3 and they collided at Smart and Oakley avenues in Kansas City. Day then approached the victim’s vehicle and shot her once. Two days later, the hospitalized woman was able to identify her attacker in writing, telling investigators the two had been romantically involved for several years.
