KANSAS CITY 2019 HOMICIDE #108: WILL INDEPENDENCE AVE. KILLING START ANOTHER WEEKEND MURDER SPREE?!?!



The Kansas City weekend is off to a deadly start already as a bevy of Fall activities brings more people into the increasingly violent metro fray and threatens to push this town toward a record-breaking homicide pace.

To wit and to start the last quarter of the year . . .

KANSAS CITY HOMICIDES HAVE SPIKED MORE THAN 16% AFTER LAST YEAR DESPITE INCREASED REWARDS FOR TIPS AND MORE COMMUNITY OUTREACH!!!

Here's the latest . . .

The shooting happened at about 3:30 p.m. near Independence and Bales avenues. The victim initially suffered life-threatening injuries and was taken to the hospital where he later died.

Police have not released any suspect information or details about what led up to the shooting.

KCPD is asking anyone with information about this deadly shooting to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477.

Check the links:

KMBC: Police investigate fatal shooting Friday near Independence, Bales

FOX4: Man shot and killed at Kansas City convenience store on Independence Avenue

KSHB: Man killed in parking lot off Independence Avenue in KCMO

And so we hope this isn't the start of another bloody weekend as KCMO has already suffered 5 murders so far this week.

I hate it when the commenters give their over/under for the weekend because most of the time they turn out to be right.

TKC, you might want to mention that we're now tied with the 2017 pace that was almost a record total of 151. Like you I hope this weekend doesn't get more violent but they say that temperature is going to warm up. That doesn't bode well for the homicide count.

We need 46 more to set the record. The existing record of 153 was set in 1993. Can our hood rats get it done?
