Man Sentenced for Murder

A Missouri man has been sentenced to life in prison for a 2018 shooting outside a Kansas elementary school that killed one man and left another paralyzed.

Anthony Grable, 34, of Kansas City, Missouri, will not be eligible for parole for 50 years, WDAF-TV reported.

He pleaded guilty last year to first-degree murder, attempted murder, aggravated assault, aggravated robbery, and burglary.

In July 2018, Grable was installing playground equipment at Sunrise Point Elementary in Overland Park when a fight over tools escalated into a crime spree.

Grable fatally shot Todd Davis and critically injured Efren Gomez.

There were no children at the school at the time.

Grable then unsuccessfully tried to carjack someone at a car wash, then stole an SUV from a man a few blocks away.

Police said he drove to the carjacking victim’s house, where he was taken into custody after a standoff.

In an unsuccessful defense motion that sought a lesser sentence, his attorney said Grable was experiencing a mental health crisis on the day of the shooting.
