Overnight the level of local violence continues along another record-breaking pace.
Remember there were about 44 homicides at this time last year when KCMO broke an all-time high for killing. This morning that number climbs to 46.
Here's the word as KCPD OFFICERS WORK AROUND THE CLOCK to confront increased neighborhood gunfire . . .
About 12:45 AM officers were dispatched to 67th and Paseo on a shooting call. While officers were on the way they were notified that a vehicle with multiple shooting victims arrived at the hospital.
Officers responded there as well. At the hospital officers located 3 shooting victims. One of those victims is deceased, one has life threatening injuries, one has non life threatening injuries.
Officers that responded to the area of 67th and Paseo located evidence of a crime scene.
Detectives are now canvassing the area for witnesses and crime scene investigators are processing the scene for evidence.
If anyone saw anything or has any information they are asked to contact the homicide unit directly at 234-5043 or the TIPS hotline directly at 474-TIPS. There is a reward of up to $25,000 for information leading to an arrest in this case.
