SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- When city police searched the property of a man charged with murdering another man at the Greyhound bus terminal last week, they found a long knife and 37 .22-caliber bullets for a long rifle, among other things.  That information is in search warrant documents that are on file at the Greene County Circuit Clerk's Office.

Mohamed Dawod is charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action for the shooting death of Justin Hall.  Both were passengers on a long-distance bus that stopped in Springfield on Sept. 8. 

Witnesses said Dawod stepped in line behind Hall as Hall waited to reboard the bus, said something to him, pulled out a handgun, and shot Hall in the back from a few feet away.  Other passengers told police they saw no interaction between Dawod and Hall before the shooting. 

Police seized a red and black backpack and a red nylon gym bag that they suspected belonged to Dawod.  Before looking inside, they got a search warrant. 


The court documents show police found these items in the gym bag:

  • boots
  • 9 shirts
  • a 9.5-inch sheath knife in a sheath
  • a phone charger
  • bank records and other miscellaneous papers
  • four pairs of socks
  • a black nylon pouch, and
  • a remote control

In the backpack, police found:

  • several miscellaneous items and papers
  • a bag
  • an inverter
  • a GPS device and GPS stand
  • a black ammunition magazine
  • 37 .22-caliber rifle rounds
  • a passport
  • a cellular telephone, and
  • miscellaneious identification cards for Dawod
