The man shot to death Friday by a deputy U.S. marshal in Kansas City was the person being sought on a Johnson County arrest warrant, officials said Monday.
Kansas City police said that Fred E. Liggett Jr., 59, was armed when a U.S. Marshals Service task force member shot him while inside a home in the 8700 block of East 97th Terrace.
Deputies had gone to the home seeking a person wanted on a Johnson County warrant for aggravated indecent liberties with a child, police said.
Overland Park police said Monday that Liggett was the subject of an investigation in their city that led to the charges being filed in Johnson County District Court.
