Kansas City Deadly Double Shooting Spikes 2023 Homicide Count Back To Historic Pace

After a deadly double shooting late Wednesday night  . . . The Kansas City homicide count returns to a tragic pace. 

Last year at this date there were only 17 murders, the year before that the number was only 14.

The latest KCMO killing sets homicide stats back to the 2020 pace . . . The deadliest year in local history. 

Tragically, today's commitment to fund local anti-crime groups to the tune of more than 30 million bucks didn't matter to recent gun violence victims. 

Here is the first report . . .

Shooting: 5200 Block of 28th Ter.
