Killed – Eric R. Harrell (Kansas City, MO)


A man was found dead outside a home on the 2500 block of Quincy Avenue late Friday evening, according to a KCMO police spokesman.

Officers were dispatched after reports of gunshots, he said. The man, identified by KCMO police as 33-year-old Eric R. Harrell, was dead at the front door of the house. Anybody with information is asked to contact the TIPS hotline at 816-474-8477.

A Kansas City man and woman have been charged in connection with the murder of a 33-year-old man last December.

Omar T. Muhammad, 20, and Monique Ransom, 33, face second-degree murder and armed criminal action charges.

Eric Harrell’s body was found inside a residence in the 2500 block of Quincy Avenue on Dec. 6.

According to court records, Ransom and Harrell were in an earlier dispute, resulting in her arrest.

While being released, detention officers heard her say she was going to kill Harrell. After his death, she acknowledged the statement.

A witness said Ransom and Muhammad went into the residence. While the witness was in his car, he heard gunshots and saw Muhammad and Ransom run out of the house.

Muhammad was holding a gun, the witness said.

Another witness told police that Muhammad recounted the killing while he was in the Jackson County Jail.

Jackson County prosecutors on Thursday accused a woman and her brother of fatally shooting the woman’s roommate in December.

Prosecutors charged Monique Ransom, 33, and Omar T. Muhammad, 22, both of Kansas City, each with second-degree murder and armed criminal action in the Dec. 6 death of Eric R. Harrell, 33.

Kansas City police were called about 11 p.m. Friday to Quincy Avenue between 24th and 26th streets on reports of shots fired.
