Kansas City Homicide #118: Woman Shot Dead On Cypress

A spate of gunfire kills another victim as the homicide count continues to outpace last year's numbers.

Here is the first report . . .

Homicide 3500 Block of Cypress

This evening just before 6:15p officers were dispatched to the 3500 block of Cypress on a sound of shots call. While on the way, 911 received multiple additional calls of a shooting on the block.

On arrival officers were directed to the front of a residence there. They located the victim, an adult female, who had been shot.  EMS responded and transported the victim to the hospital with life threatening injuries.

Detectives and crime scene personnel began processing the scene at that point for evidence and canvassing for witnesses in regard to an aggravated assault.

Later this evening detectives were notified by hospital personnel the victim had died from her injuries. This is now being investigated as a homicide.

I will not be responding to the scene at this time as the detectives are nearing completion.  I can be contacted tomorrow if anyone is following up at that time and needs an interview. I can also share any additional information at that time if applicable.

Detectives are asking if anyone has any information or saw anything to call them directly at 816-234-5043 or the TIPS Hotline anonymously at 816-474-TIPS. There is a reward of up to $25,000 for information leading to an arrest in this case.
