Three robbers robbed and pistol-whipped several people during a robbery at a fraternity party late Saturday, and a 19-year-old from Kansas City has been charged in the case. Jackson County prosecutors have filed 20 counts against Bradley A. Jamierson, 19, who's accused of first-degree robbery, first-degree assault and armed criminal action.
The robbery happened about 10:30 p.m. Saturday near 56th and Lydia, court records state. One person was knocked unconscious, and several people needed stitches to their face. One robber fired his gun into the ceiling near a person's head. The probable cause states that Jamierson acknowledged he was at the party, but wasn't one of the robbers. He only ran from police, he reportedly said, because he had outstanding warrants.

The robbers demanded cash but didn’t get much. Police said five of the victims told police they lost a collective $17.
