Kansas City police on Friday identified a man shot to death in the Northeast area Wednesday as David E. Krantz, 32, of Kansas City.
Someone shot Krantz about 10:30 a.m. near Norledge and White avenues. He ran to the 300 block of Wheeling Avenue, where he collapsed in a back yard.
A resident recognized him as someone who grew up in the neighborhood and called police. He later died at a hospital.
Krantz had been living with different relatives and friends recently, police said. He had been wandering around the neighborhood before he was shot, but police aren’t sure why.
