A dead body was found inside a trailer near the 1300 block of Spruce Avenue on Tuesday morning.
Kansas City police officers were called to the scene at 8:27 a.m.
The area is populated with a number of homeless people. Drug activity and other crime is rampant there as well, said Jamie Muncy, who lives nearby.
“Down around this area, it’s pretty bad,” Muncy said. “I hear anywhere from a 100 to 200 gunshots a day where I live.
“It don’t surprise me to see a dead body, because it’s heavy down here like that,” he said.
