KANSAS CITY – A 27-year-old Kansas City man has been charged with two counts of felony in connection with the October 2017 shooting of Harlon Dunbar.

Anthony L. Robinson faces Murder in the 2nd Degree and Armed Criminal Action.

The fatal shooting occurred at 7th and Norton in the Historic Northeast on Thursday, October 26, 2017. Officers were dispatched to the location around 2:21 p.m. in response to a shots fired call. The probable cause statement says officers located the victim, Dunbar, lying in the road suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. The victim was declared deceased at the scene by EMS personnel.

Witnesses stated a black male with a grey hooded sweatshirt shot the victim and entered a minivan parked on the north side of 7th Street. The witness stated the suspect entered the front passenger seat of the minivan she was driving, pointed the gun at her, and told her to drive to 37th Street and Bales. The witness called 911 and informed the call taker she witnessed the homicide and was directed to drive the suspect to the location he requested.

Witnesses identified Robinson from a photo line-up as the suspect who shot Dunbar. He was arrested on April 11, 2018 and transported to the East Patrol Division.

Court records indicate Robinson faces Murder in the 2nd Degree and Armed Criminal action.
