Kansas City 2024 Homicide #5: Victim Dies After Parking Lot Gunfire

Thankfully, the arctic chill cooled the historic pace of homicides.

In a historic year for killing on local streets, last year the total was already 13 by this date on the calendar. The year before that KCMO had racked up 15 homicides by this point. It's too early to celebrate a 61% decrease in homicides so far BUT we'll take any good news where we can find it.

Sadly . . . 

Once again, local violence has ramped up again during fake Spring.

Here's the latest homicide report . . .

Late Death: 100 Blk W 99 Ter

On 01-31-24 just before 11:00 AM Kansas City Police Officers responded to the 100 blk of W 99th ter. on a reported shooting. Upon arrival officers were directed to a lower parking garage of an apartment complex. Officers located a victim in a parking garage who was suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. EMS responded and transported the victim to a local hospital where the subject was listed in critical condition.
