KANSAS CITY 2020 HOMICIDE #139: DRUNKEN HOUSE PARTY TURNS DEADLY!!!
Here's the aftermath of late night boozing as this town's murder rate keeps pushing closer to an all-time record.
Check the police narrative on the family feud:
Police responded at 11 p.m. to a home near 67th Street and Brooklyn Avenue after someone called in a shooting. There officers found a man near the front door. He had been shot.
Responding medical crews tried to save the man's life, but he died from his injuries.
As officers spoke to the eyewitnesses at the home, they told police that some of the adults were drinking alcohol. One person picked up a gun and threatened another person in the house. The person who was threatened then picked up a gun of their own and shot the man, the eyewitnesses told police.
The shooter surrendered to police at the scene and is cooperating with investigators, according to the police department.
To be fair, this one might later be ruled self-defense/justifiable homicide and taken off the local count . . . But at this point it's being investigated as a murder.
