Missouri man charged in triple shooting near KU campus

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) – A 22-year-old Grain Valley, Missouri, man is charged in a shooting near the University of Kansas campus that injured three people.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports Caleb K. Chrisman is charged with aggravated robbery, aggravated burglary and three counts of aggravated kidnapping after allegedly holding three men at gunpoint in an attempt to rob them of cash around 4:30 p.m. Feb. 8 in a home at 1621 W. 19th Terrace, court documents state.

The three victims, two of whom are KU students, suffered gunshot wounds during the commission of the crime, according to Lawrence police spokesman Sgt. Trent McKinley. None of the charges filed against Chrisman implies he shot the men.

The three men injured in the Feb. 8 shooting have all been released from the hospital.

Investigators have said at least two people fled from the scene after the shooting. Lawrence police spokesman Sgt. Trent McKinley says the investigation into other possible suspects is continuing.

Chrisman is being held in the Douglas County Jail on a $500,000 bond. It wasn’t immediately clear if he had an attorney to discuss the charges.
