KANSAS CITY 2020 HOMICIDE #20: DEADLY GUNFIRE ECHOED THROUGH DOWNTOWN!!!
Our cowtown love hangover is REAL and whilst most of us might be dwelling over broken romance, loneliness or the Wu-Tang flu -- The situation near the loop is far more serious.
Skeptics might argue that this incident was outside the loop but it was really just a stone's throw away from all of the redeveloped condos and a few of our readers wrote-in to say that they heard the gunshots.
To wit . . .
DEADLY GUNFIRE ECHOED THROUGH KANSAS CITY IN THE EARLY MORNING AMID THE AFTERGLOW OF VALENTINE'S DAY!!!
It was actually a pretty violent night in Kansas City with one shooting downtown and another near MLK Blvd.
Here's the roundup:
KCTV5: Police - 1 dead, 1 seriously injured after 2 shootings overnight
KSHB: Police said the victim shot at East Ninth Street and Troost Avenue died at the hospital just before 9 a.m.
Fox4: Anyone with information about this homicide is urged to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS.
Remember that Winter is usually when Kansas City homicides are at their lowest number given the cold, holiday season good vibes left over and fewer people moving around in the cold.
Moreover, it's important to realize that 20 homicides this year STILL puts KCMO at a 5-year-record-high pace and this is a time when a new Mayor, Super Bowl victory and relatively good economic times are expected to lift spirits and bring peace. That hasn't happened yet.
