Police have identified a 23-year-old man fatally shot while driving on a Grandview highway Friday as D’Shawn L. Marchbanks Jr. of Kansas City.
Nearly two years ago, Marchbanks survived being shot in the chest by a Kansas City resident as Marchbanks and another man tried to break into that person’s home.
On Friday, he was driving north on Interstate 49 with a passenger when someone riding in a Dodge Durango pointed a gun out a window and fired at Marchbanks’ car.
At least one bullet struck Marchbanks as the vehicles were near the Harry Truman Drive overpass, police said. Shattered glass struck his passenger.
Never miss a local story.
Marchbanks died after being taken off life support, said Sgt. Dean Van Winkle, a Grandview police spokesman.
Police think the shooting stemmed from a disagreement that occurred in south Kansas City.
No arrests have been made.
Marchbanks was on probation after being released from a Missouri prison in October while serving a two-year sentence. He had pleaded guilty to second-degree attempted burglary in the failed May 2013 burglary attempt in south Kansas City that ended when a resident fired a gun through her back door and hit Marchbanks.
In 2009, he received a four-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to weapons-related charges.
