On April 17, 2011, Donnell Coleman was shot and killed after two men kicked down the front door of the apartment where Coleman was staying. Deangelo Grant turned himself in two days later. Law enforcement officials had been seeking Grant on suspicion of second-degree murder, armed criminal action and first-degree robbery. Grant had outstanding warrants in Lafayette County for illegal drug violations and in Platte County for passing bad checks. In May 2011, murder charges against Grant were dropped.
