Kansas City police investigate homicide in Jazz District
One man is dead and another seriously injured after a double shooting early Sunday in Kansas City’s historic Jazz District, according to police.
The shootings occurred just before 2 a.m. near 18th and Vine streets while numerous people were outside, police said.
Witnesses directed arriving officers to a male shooting victim, who was dead in a vehicle on 19th Street. A short time later, another man arrived at a hospital with gunshot wounds.
Police think the victim, who was in serious condition at the hospital, also was shot in the Jazz District.
Because there were so many people outside in the area at the time of the shooting, police said someone likely saw something relating to the shooting.
