A 19-year-old man has been charged with murder in the shooting Friday night of his adoptive father, who was also a co-worker at a Lee’s Summit Burger King, according to authorities.
Shaquil J. Roland, of Kansas City, has been charged with second-degree murder and armed criminal action, accused of shooting Antonio Dennis, 33, who was Roland’s adoptive father and manager at the restaurant, according to court records.
The shooting was reported about 9 p.m. outside a Burger King in the 1300 block of Northeast Douglas Street, where Lee’s Summit police officers found Dennis shot. Dennis was transported to a hospital, where he died.
According to prosecutors, Roland was working at the Burger King with Dennis when the two argued and stepped outside the restaurant.
Later, Roland went back inside and told other employees he was sorry, court documents say. He carried a handgun and laid it on a counter and ran from the restaurant. An employee went out to administer first aid to Dennis.
Witnesses gave a description of Roland and told officers he had run north from the parking lot. Police soon arrested Roland.
Roland was in custody Saturday. Prosecutors requested a $200,000 bond.
