Independence police arrest man in connection to two killed Friday

(AP) Police have arrested an 18-year-old man in the Friday deaths of two men in southeastern Kansas. The Kansas Bureau of Investigation and Independence police served an arrest warrant Sunday night at the Labette County Jail to 18-year-old James Gofourth, of Independence, who was already in the jail on a separate case. The arrest warrant accuses Gofourth of two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of 27-year-old Tyler Cook and 24-year-old Rodricus Dawson, and one count of attempted first-degree murder for injuring a 27-year-old Independence woman, who remains hospitalized. Officers found all three inside inside a vehicle that had crashed into an apartment building early Friday morning after someone reported gunshots in the area.
