There- they found a middle-age male who had been fatally stabbed by another male. There had apparently been a fight over a female.
The suspect was taken into police custody at the scene.
The child was apparently near-death- for the fire department's pumper crew left their truck alone at the scene and rode with the ambulance to the nearest medical center- Providence.
The infant was declared dead at the hospital.
I didn't hear if anyone at the apartment was arrested or of any possible suspect(s).
According to various police- fire and EMS reports pieced together- a portion of the restaurant building was "heavily-damaged-" and also "collapsed."
The "highly-intoxicated- 33-year-old male driver" was reportedly was not that badly hurt as he was transported to Research Med Center with a police car following behind the ambulance..
It was reported that "CPR" was being performed on the victim before emergency crews arrived.
I was surprised a medical helicopter wasn't summoned to the scene- as a ground ambulance transported the critically-injured victim to Centerpoint Med Center in Independence.
No word on any suspect information.
Didn't hear of anyone hurt or much else on this incident that occurred in the far southeastern part of that county.
The victim was "thrown over the hood" the ambulance's paramedic told Truman Med Center/West's emergency room and I guess to some degree of fortunately- the victim was "intoxicated" as his injuries were surprisingly not that severe.
The striking driver did stop at the scene.
The unknown-number of occupants escaped uninjured- and that fire was reported "out" at 5:06 am.
An investigation into the cause of this fairly-minor blaze was conducted.
The structure was "heavily" involved in flames and there was reported to be vehicles inside and near the structure that were also burning.
At 5:35 am- EMS was sent to the scene on the report of a person "burned-" but there wasn't any word on that person's condition when I went off duty at 6 am..
So if someone tells you that there isn't much that goes on overnights on weekends- you have my consent since 1991 to call them a liar....
