Criminal charges have been filed against a Kansas City man. According to a release from the United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, Steven Marquain Davis, 29, was charged with armed bank robbery, carjacking, and use of a firearm during a violent crime. The robbery took place Friday, January 9th and Davis left the bank with over 29-thousand dollars.
Upon leaving the bank, Davis reportedly threatened civilians with his gun as he attempted a carjacking. Police were able to shoot and wound Davis before taking him into custody. Police recovered the money, a remote device which was believed to be for a bomb, and a Smith and Wesson .38-caliber revolver.
