Kansas City police last night arrested 19-year-old Phillip D. Martin, whom Jackson County prosecutors charged Monday with killing Gurpreet Singh, 35. Singh was robbed and killed as he was working the midnight shift at the 7-Eleven at 85th Street and Bannister Road.
Singh had cooperated with the robber who pointed a gun at him and demanded cash, but the gunman shot him anyway. Singh died later at a hospital. The Kansas City Star reports that Singh leaves behind two children, who will be raised by his brother, Gurbhushan Singh, and his family.
Singh's relatives have set up a scholarship fund in his name.
