The local pace of killing continues to rise in Kansas City.
KCPD are working late into the night to keep up with the carnage and secure local neighborhoods.
Here's the latest report:
Just after 10pm officers were dispatched to 11100 block of Hillcrest on a sound of shots call. When officers arrived they located a male in the street unresponsive.
Officers called for EMS who declared the victim deceased at the scene.
Preliminary investigation appears the victim was shot.
Anyone who may have been in that area at that time or with information is asked to call the homicide unit directly or the TIPS hotline at 474-TIPS. There is a reward of up to $25,000 for information in this case.
Again, this is the 54th homicide so far this year compared to 53 at this time last year.
