For the second day in a row, a drive-by shooting in Kansas City turned into a motor vehicle accident.
Police were called about 3:20 p.m. Monday to 63rd and Olive streets on a shooting. A man in his mid-20s was driving west on 63rd Street when he was shot by an occupant of a light-colored compact vehicle. After being shot, the victim crashed into a pole. A female passenger then drove him to a hospital in serious condition. Anyone with information is asked to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS (8477).
About 9:30 p.m. Sunday, police were called to what was initially reported as an injury crash near Swope Parkway and Cleveland Avenue. The call was then upgraded to a shooting.
Witnesses said the victim’s vehicle was westbound and stopped at a red light when another vehicle pulled up and an occupant started firing shots. The suspect vehicle then sped away westbound on Swope and struck a vehicle at Swope and Benton Boulevard.
The shooting victim was declared dead at the scene and identified Monday as Isabell Adison, 18.
An occupant of the suspect vehicle was taken into custody.
