Kansas City police have found a burned car they believe was used by the shooters in Tuesday afternoon’s double homicide on Blue Parkway near Hardesty Avenue.

Police late Tuesday identified the victims as 33-year-old Deon Drew and 21-year-old Rollonn Gordon.

Someone reported a car fully engulfed in flames behind a house in the 3800 block of East 60th Terrace about 6 p.m. Tuesday.

The car was believed to be a white or gray Hyundai, which matches the description of the suspects’ vehicle in the 1:20 p.m. shooting that killed two men and wounded a third man.

The victims were sitting in a pickup truck at Blue Parkway and Hardesty when a Hyundai pulled up and its occupants opened fire. The gunmen shot out their own back window to continue firing at the truck as they fled south on Hardesty.

The torched car was found in a residential neighborhood less than three miles from the shooting scene.
