Six Kansas teens busted for murder in botched drug deal: cops



Six teens are each facing a first-degree murder charge after a botched drug deal in Kansas, a report said Wednesday.

Four 14-year-olds and a pair of 13-year-olds were arrested Tuesday in connection with the shooting death of 19-year-old Marco Cardino on May 14, the Johnson County District Attorney’s Office said.

The six teens were not identified due to their ages.

Prosecutors have filed a motion to try the group of 14-year-olds as adults, the district attorney’s office told The Post Wednesday.

Authorities believe the shooting stemmed from a drug deal gone sideways, according to KMBC-TV.

Olathe police officers were called to Black Bob Park around 4 a.m. after gunshots were heard, the department said Monday. Cardino, of Missouri, was pronounced dead at the scene with multiple gunshot wounds, according to Olathe police.

Originally, four teens were in custody connected to the slaying before another two teens were also picked up, police said.
