Police, called once for a domestic disturbance, are called back for a homicide in KCK

A 22-year-old man was shot and killed, and another man arrested, Monday after a domestic disturbance in Kansas City, Kansas.

Police responded to the domestic disturbance about 3:45 p.m. in the 700 block of North 22nd Street.

When officers arrived, the suspect had left. Officers completed a report and cleared the scene, said Officer Zac Blair, a spokesman for the Kansas City, Kansas Police Department.

Soon after, police received a call that the suspect had shown up again and shots were fired.

A man was declared dead at the scene. He was identified by police as Dominique Jennings, a Kansas City, Kansas, resident.

Another person, who police described as a male, was taken into custody.

The block was cordoned off with red and yellow police tape. Blair said detectives were interviewing witnesses and family members while crime scene investigators were collecting evidence.

Anyone with information is asked to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477.
