KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A man facing multiple charges after court records say he randomly shot three people, including one fatally, was pulled over by KCK Police for a February traffic stop.

Arnoldo Pompa-Rascon, 41, was cited for a defective tail lamp, no driver's license and no insurance. 

According to KCK Police, Pompa-Rascon was not arrested and his car was not towed.

But he could not continue to drive the car, which was registered to a person in New Mexico.

Pompa-Rascon never showed up for court to face the traffic violations, so there are active warrants for him on all three violations.  

According to KCK Police, a background check at the time of his traffic stop did not reveal Pompa-Rascon was in the country illegally.

According to Federal Immigration or ICE, border guards first encountered Pompa-Rascon in 2001.

He voluntarily returned to Mexico.

But in June 2013, court records show a border patrol agent spotted Pompa-Rascon walking in the desert in New Mexico when he admitted to crossing the border illegally.

Pompa-Rascon was convicted of that misdemeanor and then deported to Mexico.

But just months later, court records show Pompa-Rascon was arrested again in February 2014 for again illegally crossing the border into New Mexico.

This time he was convicted of a felony because it was a second time.

Pompa-Rascon was again deported back to Mexico.

Now, he's being held in the Clay County Jail on multiple charges.

ICE has placed a detainer on Pompa-Rascon to potentially take custody of him in the event he posts his $1 million bond.

Meanwhile, there's a sign on the window outside Black Card Tattoo Collectives in Zona Rosa. The store has been closed after court records say Pompa-Rascon shot and killed owner Russell Fisk, 30.

It reads, "The Black Card Family wants to thank everyone for the amazing support and love we have received these last few days. We will be REOPENING to the public May 22nd. We are taking this week to mourn and to get preparations started for the new chapter of Black Card Tattoo Collective. You will see more updates as the week progresses. Thank you again,

-Nicholle, Brady, Jesse and Nick"

A statement issued to 41 Action News on behalf of his co-workers states,

"This is such a devastating time for everyone involved. We loved him immensely and it was an absolute honor and privilege to work with him and call him family."

A funeral for Fisk is scheduled for Friday out of state.
