A Raytown man has been charged in connection with a robbery of two men in their Independence home.

John D. Pierson, 26, faces first-degree robbery and first-degree burglary charges. Prosecutors have requested a bond of $100,000.

Police arrived at a home in the 800 block of South Park about 9:30 p.m. Saturday and found Pierson, suffering from a gunshot wound, inside the house.

Two men who were in the home when Pierson and another man came to the door. Police said they forced their way in and began punching and kicking the victims and asking about pills.

The victims said they were robbed of money and other valuables.

One of the victims was allowed to go into his bedroom and returned with a shotgun, firing one time and striking Pierson. . .

    My patnl grand rents lived in Ray town back in the days an ‘undesirables’ could be kept out of town. Now we have to allow anyone to move in … all sorts of trash now live in Ray town, independence & Lee’s Summit … as these populations have moved to KC’s eastern suburbs trouble has come with them.
    Even prestigious gated developments are not immune to the troubles. My sister lives at Rain Tree Lake in Lee’s Summit which had recently endured a spate of burglaries, & armed robberies of local businesses … until recently almost unheard of crimes out there …
    Trash, regardless of race, is trash …

      My parents and two of my brothers and their families live near the Blue Spring area just East of KC. I have been there often visiting and frankly, I never go any where without a weapon. It seems as if much of everywhere is turning into a war zone.
