KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Police in Rowlett, Texas, near suburban Dallas say a teen accused in a triple shooting in January could be in Kansas City, Missouri.

Three days before the shooting unfolded, Butler had been in fight that also involved the other teen.

Investigators later identified the suspect as Butler. He's wanted for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony.

Butler may be in Kansas City, Missouri, but no other details on his connection to the city were immediately available.

Anyone with information on Butler's whereabouts can contact Rowlett chief of police Eric Shing at (469)-853-3328.
