A sad follow-up to a Kansas City killing last night . . . Dead Tree Media notes a drug connection . . .

The report . . .
"On Tuesday, Jan 8, 2013, at approximately 6:30pm, officers were called to a residence in the 8900 blk of Blue Ridge Blvd in regard to a shooting. Upon arrival officers located a shooting victim (w/m mid 20's) inside the residence with no signs of life. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The victims roommate stated he was in the house when the shooting occurred and observed two suspects (b/m's early 20's) flee the scene in an unknown model white car. The homicide appears to be drug related. Anyone with information is encouraged to call the TIPS Hotline at 816.474.8477."
And this instance of a suspected drug dealer killed in Kansas City might seem typical but certainly reveals that demographic stereotypes don't always match reality.
