Kansas City 2024 Homicide #4: Deadly Gunfire Erupts On East Side

The arctic freeze of gun violence in Kansas City seems to be over as the weekend starts with a spate of shooting.

Here is the first report . . . 

Homicide 3600 block of E 58th St.

Tonight just after 6pm officers were dispatched to 58th and Swope pkwy on a disturbance/nature unknown.

On arrival officers were led to the front of the convenience store, just outside, to the victim, an unresponsive adult male who appeared to have been shot.

Officers rendered aid and summoned EMS into the scene. EMS declared the victim deceased at the scene.

People who were at the scene when police arrived told officers there was an argument inside the business between the victim and at least one other person. That argument escalated and shots were fired, and the victim was struck.

Detectives and crime scene investigators are processing the scene for evidence, canvassing for witnesses and speaking to people who were at the scene.

There is not anyone in custody at this time and there is not any suspect information.

If anyone was in this area tonight and has any information they are asked to contact Homicide detectives 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 submitted anonymously to the TIPS hotline.

We are committed to assisting victims of violent crimes through use of Missouri’s Protection Program for Victims/Witnesses of Violent Crime. Funding for temporary, or even permanent relocation, may be available but is subject to pre-approval by the State’s administering agency.

We are working with Partners for Peace in all our homicide investigations to monitor risks for retaliation and provide social services to affected residents.
