One person was found fatally shot Saturday afternoon in the driveway of a home on Wabash Avenue in Kansas City, according to police.
Kansas City police were called to East 53rd Street and Wabash Avenue just before 4 p.m. after gunfire was heard in the area. Police found a male victim with a gunshot wound who was pronounced dead in the driveway of a home. Police did not immediately provide the victim’s age and name.
“We’re still trying to piece together exactly what happened out here,” said police spokesman Capt. Tim Hernandez. Hernandez said police learned there was a rolling gun battle that spanned several blocks. Police reported finding shell casings at multiple locations within a two-block radius of the scene.
Police had no suspect information Saturday evening. Hernandez said the scene was being processed and detectives were interviewing witnesses.
The killing marked the second homicide investigated by police on Saturday.
Earlier in the day, after 9:30 a.m., a man was found dead at the Jubilee Market, a gas station at 2410 Hardesty Ave.
