Kansas City 2024 Homicide #72: Woman Shot & Killed At Linwood Apartment Building

This is the 3rd homicide so far in the first full week of Summer. 

Remember . . .

Whilst politicos have been touting a drop in violent crime compared to last year's historic numbers, our blog community has noted that Summer typically starts the most deadly time of year in Kansas City proper.

Accordingly, here's the latest report . . .
