Three more men have been indicted for their roles in a conspiracy that included at least 27 armed robberies over a three-month period in 2016 – the last robbery ending with officers fatally shooting one suspect in Blue Springs.

Kevin “Kilo Ali” Thompson-Randell, 22, and Demetrius Nelson, 24, both of Kansas City, and Frank “Fonzi” Garner of Grandview were charged in a 36-count second superseding indictment returned Wednesday by a federal grand jury. All three suspects have been arrested.

The indictment replaces a superseding indictment returned in August 2016 and includes additional charges, as well as the original charges against 27-year-old Shannon Thomas, of Shawnee, Kan., and 22-year-old Deonte Collins-Abbott and 25-year-old Parrise “Kilo” Black, all of whom have been in federal custody without bond since their arrests.

Thomas and Collins-Abbott were arrested the morning March 24, 2016, after a robbery at Walgreens on Missouri 7 in Blue Springs. The two and Jermon Seals of Shawnee had been followed by officers from the FBI, U.S. Marshals Service and Kansas City police. According to court documents, when the officers confronted the suspects outside the drugstore after 3 a.m., they failed to obey repeated commands and at least one suspect pointed a gun toward the officers, who then fired at him. Seals, 22, was killed, and the other two were arrested after a short foot chase.

Black was charged in the superseding indictment from August 2016. Wednesday's indictment alleges that all six co-defendants participated in a series of armed robberies from Jan. 2 to March 24, 2016. Seventeen of at least 27 alleged armed robberies are charged in the indictment. Charges include multiple counts of armed robbery and brandishing a firearm during a violent crime.

The robberies occurred at businesses in Independence (QuikTrip at U.S. 40 and Lee's Summit Road), Raytown, North Kansas City, Kansas City, Missouri, and Kansas City, Kansas. In all of the robberies, the suspects consistently displayed handguns in a threatening manner and were violent and aggressive toward victims, and a victim was shot in one of the robberies.
