A shooting in Kansas City left 3 dead and 5 injured


At least three people were killed — two men and a woman — and five others were injured after a shooting Sunday morning in Kansas City, Missouri, police said.

Around 4:30 a.m. local time, police responded to the scene on 57th St. and Prospect Ave., where preliminary information indicated there was a large gathering of people in a parking lot.

Officers found three people dead and later determined that five other people had arrived at various hospitals by ambulance or private vehicle with “non-life-threatening injuries,” police said in a news release.

No suspects have been arrested, but police said they are “confident there are many witnesses to this incident who may have valuable information.”

“If anyone was in the area or nearby at this time and saw or heard anything, they are asked to contact homicide detectives directly at 816-234-5043 or the TIPS hotline anonymously at 816-474-TIPS” , the Kansas City, Missouri Police Department said in a statement.

Police are offering a reward of “up to $25,000 for information submitted anonymously to the TIPS hotline.”

Police said they are working with Partners for Peace “to monitor risks of reprisals and provide social services to affected residents.”
