Murder Suspect Wanted

18 year old Jordan Bartram was sitting in a car on Lafayette Street in St. Joseph about 10:30 Tuesday night when a hail of about 10 gun shots rang out. She was hit and later died after surgery. The shooting is the latest in a string of such cases in St. Joseph during the past several months with houses and even a school bus hit with bullets. Police captain Kevin Castle says the death comes as the main suspect and another group continue to target each other not the public. Police say several people are believed to have been in the blue 4-door car involved in the drive by shooting. But they are still looking for one in particular 21 year old Calvin Ford, a black male with short hair and a mustache. Investigators say Ford is out on probation for a previous weapon charge and is from St. Joseph but frequents Kansas City. Castle says it's hoped with Ford's arrest the shootings in St. Joseph might de-escalate.
