SOUTH KANSAS CITY ROBBERY PUSH BACK: CARJACKER SUSPECT SHOT DEAD!!!
An early morning confrontation turns deadly in the Southland.
However, while this local killing might help indicate the growing level of violence on Kansas City streets . . . This deadly gun battle likely won't be recorded as a homicide given current reporting standards that don't count "justified" killings.
Here's the story:
The incident happened near 51st and Blue Ridge just before 3 a.m.
The man who called 911 waited in the parking lot for police to arrive. First responders pronounced the suspected carjacker dead at the scene.
Police found a man dead inside a dark color sedan in the street.
Police said three subjects of interest are in custody and cooperating with detectives.
