KANSAS CITY, MO – Police have accused a teenager of murdering his uncle during an argument over chores.
On Saturday, police were called to a home shortly before 6 p.m. on a reported shooting. Once there, they found 37-year-old Robbie L. Lee inside the home, dead from an apparent gunshot wound to the chest.
Also in the home was Lee’s 17-year-old nephew, Tye Lee. A witness told police that Tye was the person who shot Robbie. They said the two got into an argument after the uncle told his nephew he was lazy and needed to do more chores around the house.
Robbie, who had just underwent shoulder surgery, told his nephew, “I’ll stand up to you.” The teen apparently didn’t like this too much and retrieved a gun from the living room. He then shot his uncle in the chest before sitting on the front porch to wait on police.
Tye Lee has been charged with second-degree murder. His bond has been set at $750,000.Tags: chores, Crime, Missouri, Murder, Robbie Lee, Shooting, Tye Lee
