Kansas City 2019 Homicide #122: Northeast Murder-Suicide Reported Sunday Night
We wanted to end posting this evening on a hopeful note but tragic real life in a part of the urban core undergoing somewhat of a revival interrupts our news feed.
The narrative so far . . .
"Police responded to the shooting just after 8 p.m. at a home in the 400 block of Oakley Avenue Sunday night. Officers found a man and woman inside the home deceased from gunshot wounds. The victims have not been identified . . . Police said they are not looking for any suspects at this time."
Again, this is the 122nd homicide so far this year compared to 110 at this time last year for an overall 5-YEAR-MURDER-COUNT-HIGH.
