KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A fourth teenager has been charged in connection with the shooting death of a Belton, Missouri, teen outside a Raytown pool hall earlier this month.
Mackenzie Hyatt, 17, of Lee’s Summit, Missouri, was charged Thursday with second-degree murder.
Riley McCrackin, 19, was shot to death March 4 in an alley behind the Raytown Recreation , a pool and billiards hall on 63rd Street in Raytown, Missouri.
Logan England surrendered to authorities eight days later, confessing to being one of two shooters in McCrackin’s death.
Two more teenagers — Tynan Mullen, 19, and Kaci Cox, 17 — were charged March 17 in McCrackin’s homicide.
According to a probable cause statement provided by the Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office, Hyatt drove Mullen’s white Dodge Dart from the scene after McCrackin’s murder.
When England and Mullen returned, Mullen instructed Cox to drive away. She refused, saying she didn’t have a driver’s license.
That’s when Hyatt moved into the driver’s seat before Mullen confessed that he “blasted (McCrackin) in the head,” according to the probable cause statement.
Hyatt told police she thought England and Mullen were going to meet with McCrackin to “squash the beef” between them. England told her to park far from the scene because he expected a fight, which he didn’t want Hyatt to see.
Mullen and Cox are scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary hearing April 1, while England is due back in court May 23.
No court date has been set for Hyatt, who is being held on a $200,000 bond.
