Andrew Lester accused of killing Ralph Yarl

Property records reviewed by The Star show that Lester, 84, owns the house where Ralph was shot. A custody status database also showed that KCPD booked him last week on assault-related charges. Civil rights attorney Ben Crump, who is among the attorneys representing Ralph’s family, said that based on what Ralph’s relatives told him, the shooter is white.

Ralph rang the doorbell at the wrong address before the shooting: at a house on 115th Street instead of 115th Terrace, according to police. The man who answered the door shot Ralph in the head and shot him again when he was on the ground, Ralph’s family said. Ralph was able to get up and ask the neighbors for help, but he had to go to three houses before he got help.
