SHAME!!! KANSAS CITY HOMICIDE #113 REPORTED FIRST AS TRAFFIC JAM FOR KANSAS CITY CHIEFS HOME GAME!!!
To be clear, we don't blame newsies for this coverage that's accurate . . . But the context and juxtaposition offers a glimpse of local priorities and how Kansas City really isn't serious about curbing deadly crime.
Here's the word . . .
All eastbound lanes of I-70 have been closed at I-435 after a shooting victim was found dead in a car following a wreck on I-70.
Authorities were originally called to I-70 eastbound at Sterling Avenue at 3:05 p.m. to investigate a crash. When they arrived, authorities found one person in the car involved, and that person was dead as the result of an apparent gunshot wound.
KCPD is redirecting onto southbound I-435 and Chiefs fans are being advised accordingly.
This is the 113th KCMO homicide so far compared to 101 at this time last year.
