Trial set for resident accused in shooting

October 24, 2009


A Lawrence man accused of trying to kill a Kansas City man in June has been bound over for trial, Douglas County prosecutors said.

James “Jimmy” McAdams, 19, is charged with attempted second-degree murder, criminal possession of a firearm and aggravated intimidation of a witness or victim, all felonies.

Police said McAdams fired shots at a 20-year-old Kansas City, Mo., man just before 2 a.m. June 19, after a robbery attempt near 24th Street and Murphy Drive, southeast of 23rd and Iowa streets. No injuries were reported.

After a preliminary hearing in district court on Friday, Judge Robert Fairchild ruled there was enough evidence to set the case for a jury trial, which has been scheduled for Feb. 1, prosecutors said. McAdams is being held in Douglas County Jail.
