KMBC: Mayor vents frustration after boy, 4, killed in shooting
“What in the holy hell is going on in this city,” James said.
The shooting was one incident in an unusually violent weekend.
“I don’t think I can be any more frustrated, upset and angry with the whole thing,” James said. “(And) at a loss for more ideas.”
James said he spoke with Police Chief Darryl Forte Monday, trying to find a way to stop the violence in the city. He said more manpower is being added to the Police Department’s homicide and intelligence divisions.
A makeshift memorial for the boy at the scene of the shooting has grown throughout the day. On social media, one women wrote that her nephew lost his life, ‘Due to some young dumb people having a gun battle late last night. He didn’t get a chance to live his life, not even pick a sport to be good at.”
“I’m tired of it. I’m sick to death of it,” James said . . .
