After several days of unrest in the metro, a homicide that occurred in the early morning is being investigated. Police in Kansas City, Missouri, are currently looking into a fatal shooting that occurred on Thanksgiving Day close to E. 84th Street and Olive Street.
Just after 2 in the morning, police were called to a house in the Marlborough neighbourhood after a 911 caller requested assistance. According to KCPD Sgt. Jake Becchina, “when they arrived, they were directed to an adult man shooting victim outside of a residence here and unresponsive.”
The individual was pronounced deceased at the site by emergency personnel. When the police arrived, there were several people there, according to Sgt. Becchina. “Officers hold them in custody pending an additional inquiry.”
The police are urging anyone with knowledge to come forward. Four males were killed in three separate homicides investigated by Kansas City police over the last three days. Since the beginning of the month, there had not been a single homicide in Kansas City until this past week.
