KANSAS CITY HOMICIDE #56: MIDTOWN GUNFIRE LEAVES ONE DEAD!!!
This was an exceptionally violent night for Kansas City with several gunfire instances reported throughout KCMO.
Here's the round-up and the lead photo is a TKC original taken on the way back to basement HQ:
A son shot his daddy in during a disturbance that occurred about 6:40 p.m. Monday in the 5900 block of Blue Hills Road. The victim is expected to survive.
And then . . .
Police were dispatched to the 2500 block of Kensington Avenue on a report of a separate shooting. A 21-year-old victim with a gunshot wound to the lower back was found in the yard. A report notes the victim is stable, silent and unwilling to cooperate with police.
Finally, Midtown Kansas City suffered another instance of deadly gunfire just one block away from the future path of the toy train streetcar extension down Main st.
The killing was right next to a local flop house that's one of the worst in KCMO and the source of constant trouble -- It's one of the many reasons the nearby Walgreen's is nearly unusable despite its convenience.
Check the round-up:
KCTV5: One person killed in shooting in Midtown
KMBC: KCPD investigates homicide near 39th, Wyandotte
FOX4: One person killed in shooting in Midtown near 39th and Wyandotte
Again, this is the #56th homicide so far in 2019 compared to 51 at this time last year.
