A 30-year-old Kansas City man has been charged with murder in the Aug. 24 shooting death of a man at a convenience store on Indiana Avenue.
Jackson County prosecutors said Thursday that they had charged Terrance L. Banks, 30, with second-degree murder and armed criminal action in the shooting of Rockey Bradley, 56, at the gas station near 27th Street and Indiana Avenue about 10:30 a.m.
According to court records, Blanks and Bradley appeared to be strangers to each other when they had a confrontation inside the gas station. Blanks, armed with a handgun, allegedly started the conflict and followed the older man out to the parking lot, where Bradley had a gun in his truck.
The two men exchanged gunfire, and Bradley was fatally shot. Blanks, shot in the arm, fled the scene and was found by police being treated at a hospital, having given his last name as “Randolph.”

The shooting was captured on the gas station’s surveillance video camera, which shows a second man with Blanks also firing at Bradley, according to court documents. Police interviewed a man they suspected of being that shooter, but the man denied being at the scene and has not been charged.
Prosecutors have requested a $250,000 bond.
