URBAN SILENCE CONFRONTS INVESTIGATION OF LATEST KANSAS CITY YOUNGSTER GUNNED DOWN!!!

Tweet from KC Police:
"An 8-year-old boy was shot to death in his bed while he slept Saturday night. Homicide No. 89 this year. That should make us all furious. We have no suspect information. Someone knows. 816-474-TIPS. Anonymous. $25,000 reward."
From Jackson County Prosector Jean Peters Baker:
"The latest homicide victim was 8 YO. He was exceptionally bright, he was very good in math, loved playing with LEGOs and he was very excited about the start of school. His mom was going to take him to get a backpack today so he was ready. Justice must not be denied! Tips needed."
Tweet from Mayor Quinton Lucas:
"I’m heartbroken that our community couldn’t protect our youngest. If you’re looking to do something, offer love and mentorship to his schoolmates who are experiencing tragedy before school even starts."
