Four shootings late Saturday night may be related to the same party

Kansas City police on Sunday continued to sort out the details that led about 25 police units to be dispatched to multiple locations late Saturday night.

Police found four shooting victims late Saturday in different spots in Kansas City, all wounded in violence connected to the same party, investigators believe.

Kansas City police worked Sunday to sort out the details that led about 25 units to be dispatched to multiple locations.

“It looks like quite a mess,” a police dispatcher said Sunday.

The investigation began about 11:30 p.m. Saturday when police received a call of a possible shooting in the 600 block of Norton Street, where they found one person with a gunshot wound. Soon after, another gunshot victim was found nearby in the 600 block of Myrtle Street.

A third gunshot victim — someone with a possibly life-threatening injury — was discovered in a car that had stopped at Ninth and Charlotte streets. Investigators believe the car had sped away from the area of Norton and Myrtle.

Police found a fourth gunshot victim in a car that stopped after an accident at 12th and Oak streets.

Police suspect that all the shootings may be related to a party being held Saturday night on or around Norton. Victims, whose identities were not released, were taken to hospitals.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS (474-8477).
