There was a struggle, and one of the other men shot the victim in abdomen, according to the documents. The victim survived.
The suspects fled, but investigators were able to use DNA testing to link Handy to evidence at the scene.
Handy is charged in that case in Johnson County District Court with aggravated battery and attempted aggravated robbery.
During the Overland Park incident on July 26, Handy allegedly struck another person on the head with a gun, causing a laceration that required several stitches to close.
He is charged with aggravated battery in that case.
