(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) –- A Kansas City man has been charged with first-degree murder for a crash that killed a 15-year-old boy.
Abdisamad Sheikh-Hussein, 34, who went by the name Adam, was struck by a SUV driven by Admed Aden, outside a Kansas City mosque on Thursday.
The 15-year-old later died at the hospital.
Court documents obtained by ABC News affiliate KMBC-TV say Aden fled from the scene after the accident, and then waved a machete and what appeared to be a gun at people in the area before he was arrested.
Members of the Solmali mosque have said, Aden, who is also a Somali and Muslim, had threatened the mosque in the past:
“He made it clear that he has a strong hatred towards Muslims. In general, the Somali community,” said Baker Abdalla, a member of the mosque.
Aden was also charged with armed criminal action, and leaving a scene of an accident.
