Hours after a juvenile was shot and killed Thursday night in Kansas City, Kan., between 40 and 50 people gathered at the crime scene.
Groups of people huddled among small individual crews as they watched police investigate the death of a juvenile police say was shot about 9:30 p.m. while on a porch in the 2000 block of North Tremont Street.
The collective of onlookers and distraught family members were eerily silent — none wanted to talk to a reporter about the shooting or the victim.
Cameron Morgan, a spokesperson for the Kansas City, Kan., Police Department, said late Thursday that police did not have detailed suspect information or a motive for the shooting.
Morgan said the juvenile appeared to be about 15 years old.
Investigators spent hours processing the scene, collecting evidence such as shell casings, talking to neighbors and pouring through surveillance videos, Morgan said.
“We’re getting every bit of information when can get,” he said.
Information police hope will help solve the homicide despite the silence on North Tremont Street.
“We should have more information (Friday),” Morgan said.
