TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY EARLY SUNDAY MORNING HOMICIDE!!!
The weather was just a bit warmer this weekend and tragically, it seems that the season of murder is starting again.
And what's more troubling this year is that mainstream media and some of our elected officials are using the homicide count for political gain and to push local control rather than engage the community on the best way to prevent crime.
Shortly before 2 AM this morning, KCPD officers were dispatched to a local hospital in regard to a shooting victim arriving. The victim, a H/M in his 20s, had been transported by an acquaintance to the hospital. The victim was pronounced dead a short time later. At this time the location or any further circumstances of the incident are unknown.
As always, anybody with any info is encouraged to call the TIPS hotline @ 474-8477
Unofficially, that's 12 murders so far this year compared with 19 at this time last year.
