KANSAS CITY, Mo. UPDATE 10/8/2018 5:10 PM: Kansas City, Missouri police have charged a man with 18 felonies in a deadly shooting spree on Sunday that left three people dead and two more wounded, including a 4-year-old.

Police confirmed that Issac Fisher, 35, is in custody in connection to the spree. 

Fisher is charged with three counts of second-degree murder, seven counts of armed criminal action, two counts of assault, two counts of unlawful use of a weapon, burglary, stealing and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child. 

He's being held on a $1 million bond. 

Police in Kansas City and Raytown spent most of Sunday looking for Fisher in connection with three fatal shootings Sunday morning.

KCPD announced shortly before 11 p.m. Sunday that Fisher was in custody.

Fisher is a subject of interest in fatal shootings in the 9000 block of Kentucky Avenue in Kansas City, a triple shooting where one person died in the 5700 block of Elm Avenue in Raytown, and a fatal shooting in the 11200 block of Eastern Avenue in Kansas City.

Preliminary information has led detectives to believe the three incidents are connected.

This isn’t Fisher’s first brush with law enforcement.

He pleaded guilty to possession of a controlled substance after an August 2000 arrest.

After a probation violation, Fisher spent 30 days in jail on that conviction.

He pleaded guilty to possession of a controlled substance again in July 2005 but completed probation in that instance.

Fisher pleaded guilty to first-degree tampering with a motor vehicle in connection with an October 2010 incident and to third-degree assault in connection with a June 2011 incident.

Both pleas were entered in January 2012 and he was sentenced to a year in jail.

Fisher’s most recent arrest was for resisting/interfering with arrest in August 2015 in Independence.
