Person of interest in fatal shooting of teenager charged with shooting at an officer

An 18-year-old who was named as a person of interest in the killing of a suburban Kansas City teen has been charged with shooting at an officer.

Matthew Lee Bibee Jr. was charged Tuesday with attempted capital murder, attempted first degree murder, attempted aggravated robbery, battery against a law enforcement officer and battery.  None of the charges appear related to the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Rowan Padgett on Friday in Olathe.

Police say Bibee was wounded Sunday in an exchange of gunfire with officers who were responding to an armed robbery attempt in which shots were fired. Bibee was treated at a hospital before he was taken to jail. No one else was hurt.

Bibee’s bond is set at $1 million.  No attorney is listed for him in online court records.
