KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — An Independence man who allegedly shot a woman and then dropped her body at a hospital has been charged with second-degree murder in her death, Jackson County prosecutors said Friday.

Ryan A. Gillispie, 37, of Independence was charged with second-degree murder and armed criminal action in the death of Ales L. Carr, 30, of Kansas City.

Carr was shot at a home in Independence, according to court records. Officers went to Centerpoint Medical Center in Independence about 12:30 a.m. Monday after a woman who had been shot in the head was left on the ground outside the emergency entrance, according to charging documents.

Surveillance video from the hospital showed a van pull up to the hospital. A man got out, carried a woman to the hospital doors and placed her on the ground before driving away, prosecutors said.

Carr was pronounced dead after hospital workers found her.

Online court records don’t name an attorney for Gillispie.
