From jail, man charged in 10 highway shootings offers a defense

Mohammed Whitaker, the man charged in 10 shootings in March and April on area roadways, has called The Kansas City Star at least eight times in recent weeks from the Jackson County jail, saying he’s been wrongly accused. He says that if the time of the sixth shooting listed on a police report — about 5:30 p.m. April 2 — is correct, then cellphone tower records show he could not have been the gunman.
