Kansas City police on Friday identified a man fatally shot early Thursday at 20th Street and Denver Avenue as James Jackson, 29, of Kansas City.
A witness saw some people interacting with Jackson, who was in his vehicle, prior to hearing a gunshot about 2:20 a.m. Jackson’s vehicle then rolled down the street and crashed into a large storage container just north of the intersection.
Jackson did not live in the area. Homicide detectives were investigating what he was doing in the neighborhood.
