Gunmen shot a man to death early Wednesday in what appears to be home invasion in south Kansas City.

A caller told police that several gunmen forced open a front door of a house in the 4200 block of East 105th Street shortly before 4:30 a.m., according to a police spokesman.

They fired several shots, fatally striking the victim. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

A woman and four children also were inside at the time, but they were not harmed.

Police were investigating the homicide this morning.

Anyone with information about the fatal shooting is asked to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS (474-8477).
