KANSAS CITY HOMICIDE #98: MURDER AMID WALDO OVERNIGHT STANDOFF!!!
Six killings in around 72 hours . . . The Kansas City homicide count continues to spiral out of control.
Here's the narrative for the latest killing:
When officers arrived they found a man shot to death in an apartment at Rediscover, a residential treatment center, at 7540 Washington Street.
Police say the investigation initially led them to a person of interest inside the treatment facility which led to a standoff. The other residents were evacuated from the building during the incident.
The suspect came out of the building a few hours later and was taken into custody without incident.
Again, this is the 98th homicide so far in 2019 compared to 89 at this time last year . . .
