A Jackson County jury on Wednesday convicted Terrell Ingram of the July 2016 fatal shooting of Malik Barbour in Lee’s Summit and recommended a life sentence.
The jury recommended Ingram, 22, be sentenced to life in prison without parole for first-degree murder, with an additional life term for armed criminal action. Judge Jack Grate will sentence Ingram at a later date.
Ingram fought with Barbour in the area of the 1500 block of Southeast Long Place. Witnesses told police Barbour got shot as he got out of a vehicle. Ingram then paused, approached Barbour, who had tried to run and fell, and fired more shots before leaving the scene as a passenger in a Jeep Grand Cherokee.
Police found Barbour dead on the sidewalk. According to court documents, police found clothing worn by Ingram the night of the shooting, as a well as a gun consistent with the spent shell casings found at the shooting scene. When police arrested Ingram, he was found with a loaded handgun later determined to have been stolen.
