The shooting occurred after the victim, who was driving a green truck, ran a stop sign on Denver Avenue and crashed into a white SUV headed eastbound on 23rd Street, Kansas City police said.

An altercation preceded the shooting.

The shooter fled the scene in a vehicle, said Lionel Colón, a police spokesman.

A crash at Denver and 23rd preceded a shooting that killed one Tuesday afternoon. It's unclear if there is a connection between the crash and shooting.

The driver of the white SUV involved in the crash was unharmed and was not involved in the shooting. The white SUV crashed into a nearby house after being struck by the truck, which was headed northbound on Denver, police said.

It remains unclear if the victim was alone in the green truck at the time of the crash. The victim was pronounced dead at a hospital.
