Downtown Kansas City Super Bowl Victory Celebratory Gunfire Hit Po-Po?!?

This was basically implied in most of the coverage but a former South Side council dude makes the question explicit . . . Here's his money line . . .

A Kansas City police sergeant was wounded by gunfire outside police headquarters at 1125 Locust at about the time of the Chiefs’ Super Bowl victory.

The officer was transported to a hospital for treatment of a non-life-threatening gunshot wound and was reported to be in stable condition.

There was a report of multiple gunshots fired nearby at approximately the same time with evidence of apparent bullet damage to nearby buildings.

From 9 to 11 p.m. the night of the Chefs’ victory, there were 64 calls to 911 complaining of shots fired in the city according to the Kansas City Police Department.  I heard constant gunfire including numerous people emptying high capacity clips for about 45 minutes after our victory before the volume of shots began to die down here in the Hickman Mills community.

“Celebratory gunfire is out of control here in Kansas City,” said Major Kari Thompson, the commander of the Department’s Community Engagement Division, in an interview.

Did Super Bowl victory celebration result in gunfire victim?

Although it is very difficult to conclusively prove without catching someone in the act, a confession, credible witness testimony or tracing a bullet to the gun it was fired from, it appears our barrage of celebratory gunfire on certain holidays and special events in KCMO may have claimed another victim.
