Three people were reported injured in a traffic crash Friday, possibly related to a nearby shooting.
Kansas City police began pursuing a vehicle whose driver refused to stop at about 12:20 p.m. Friday.
Within less than a minute someone called to report a shooting in the 5400 block of Park Avenue. A male victim was reportedly down from a gunshot wound on the porch of a house.
Officers were responding to that scene when the vehicle being pursued crashed at 59th and Harrison streets. One of the three occupants was seriously hurt and taken to a hospital. Two others suffered minor injuries.
The shooting victim at the house was also taken to a hospital with critical injuries.
