For right now we'll forgo our typical Saturday night pontificating and update more relevant Kansas City information for night owls and early birds.
The news cycle focused on this deadly gunfire end game for Saturday night . . .
MSHP confirmed Saturday night that the person killed by KCPD officers was 25-year-old Hanad A. Abdiaziz. On Saturday afternoon KCPD said a judge signed a warrant for Abdiaziz in the homicide of 16-year-old Abdulwahid Abdulaziz and 14-year-old Abdirahman Abdulaziz. Police say the teenage brothers were killed Friday night outside their home at 8th and Olive after returning from a Ramadan service.
MSHP said Abdulaziz was shot near Missouri Street Maple Blvd Saturday evening. MSHP initially did not identify him but said the shooting stemmed from their continued investigation into a double homicide at 8th and Olive Friday night.
According to MSHP, officers attempted to make contact with Abdulaziz , but the suspect presented a short barreled rifle.
An officer fired his service weapon, striking Abdulaziz.
Officers immediately performed life saving measures, a spokesperson for MSHP said. Abdulaziz was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased.
