A man was shot to death and another was stabbed Monday morning on Kansas City’s southeast side.

Police responded to the disturbance about 3:30 a.m. outside a house in the 9200 block of Eastern Avenue.

Officers found a man who had been fatally shot outside a house, police said.

A short time later, they found the stabbing victim just north of the site of the shooting. His injuries were minor, police said.

Police arrested a third man who they think instigated the violence.

The suspect apparently invited the other two men to his home to play pool. At some point, a dispute erupted between the suspect, who allegedly pulled a knife, and one of the men. The other man tried to intervene and was stabbed.

The suspect allegedly pulled a gun and continued fighting with the first man, eventually shooting him.

It was unclear what sparked the dispute.
