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.
