MO: 1 of 3 Home Invaders shot, Killed, Other 2 Charged under Felony Murder rule

Detectives said Johnson admitted to going to the home in Independence that night with friends, including Lockhart, to rob the homeowner's son of marijuana and cash. Documents show Johnson told detectives that after he, Lockhart, and Mays got into a fight at the front door of the home, a person inside the home started shooting at them.

Lockhart was killed while Johnson and Mays fled.

Charging documents state Mays told detectives that the robbery was Johnson's idea, and that he didn't know the target of the robbery, just that Johnson said the target had $12,000 they could all split.

The Jackson County Prosecutors Office has charged Johnson and Mays each with second-degree murder, attempted first-degree robbery, and armed criminal action in connection with his accomplice's death.
