Man shot as many as nine times in incident at 63rd and Troost

One person was shot multiple times, as many as nine, and was in critical condition Thursday night across from the Landing strip center at 63rd Street and Troost Avenue, police said.

A second ambulance was dispatched to the scene about 7:40 p.m. for another wounded person who initially was also said to be in serious condition. The gunfire stemmed from an attempted robbery at a store.

Editor’s note: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that the store was in the Landing shopping center.
