Kansas City Deadly Triple Shooting Kills Victim In Crossroads

Something to consider . . .

Early morning gunfire erupts at the site of the proposed but ultimately defeated Kansas City downtown baseball stadium.

Now, www.TonysKansasCity.com readers might remember that they called the spot the "East Crossroads" but that distinction was mostly just bad marketing. 

According to the Crossroads Community Improvement District . . . The shooting took place in their domain that's now suffering a crime spike in the aftermath of their rejection of taxpayer investment.

Here is the first report . . .

Homicide 1500 blk of Grand

This morning around 12:47 AM officers were dispatched to the area of Truman and Grand on a reported shooting.

Upon arrival they located an adult male victim on the sidewalk suffering from an apparent gun shot wound. Officers began performing life saving measures and summoned EMS to the scene. The victim was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased.

While on scene officers located two additional shooting victims in a parking lot behind the businesses. Both adult female victims were transported to a local hospital with non life threatening injuries.

This is being investigated as a homicide. Crime scene personnel and detectives are gathering evidence, talking with witnesses, and reviewing surveillance footage to determine what led up to the incident.

There was a large crowd on scene when officers arrived.
