KANSAS CITY (AP) — Police in Kansas City have made an arrested in a double shooting earlier this week that left a woman dead and a man injured.

James Gregory, 28, of Independence, has been arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder, first-degree assault and several other counts, police said. He is suspected in the late Monday night shooting in a northeastern Kansas City neighborhood that killed Michelle Capell, 36, of Kansas City, and injured a man, who is expected to recover.

The man told police that he and Capell were talking when a car drove by and the driver opened fire, investigators said. Detectives found video from several cameras in the area that showed the shooting and determined the car seen in the videos belongs to Gregory’s fiance.

Under questioning, Gregory denied any involvement in the shootings, court documents say.
