A witness told police that Harris was shot during a drug deal involving a man known as “OG,” according to documents filed in Jackson County Circuit Court.
That witness said she had met “OG” the previous day at a Kansas City recycling center. After viewing surveillance video from the center and speaking to employees, detectives identified Lomax, according to the court documents.
The witness identified Lomax in a photo lineup arranged by police. Two other witnesses were unable to make an identification, according to the documents.
A cell phone number linked to Lomax was found to have been in the area about the time of the homicide, according to the allegations.
Lomax told police he had never been to the address on Lexington and had not killed anyone.
He is now in the Jackson County Detention Center. His bond is set at $250,000.
