Kansas City Hits 2022 Homicide #157: Tied With 2nd Highest Killing Count In Local History

Today we note a milestone . . .

A murder this morning ties KCMO with the 2nd highest homicide total in local history. 

Again, this is the 2nd year in a row KC has achieved this tragic stat and sadly local politicos don't really have a plan to address the crisis . . . Other than blaming politicos in Jeff City. 

Here's more reporting on this topic . . .

Homicide: Armour and Broadway

Just after 5am, officers were called to Armour and Broadway in regard to a party down and EMS en route.  Upon their arrival, officers located an adult male victim unresponsive on the sidewalk who was suffering from apparent trauma.  EMS responded and pronounced the victim deceased at the scene.
