According to the LAWRENCE (KS) JOURNAL-WORLD newspaper- the woman killed by random gunfire on northbound U.S. 71 and 59th Street late Friday night was a Lawrence resident who was returning from a show at Starlight Theater.
This incident was first reported here at CSW early this morning.
The LJ-W reports the victim was "46-year-old Deanna Lieber" who was driving the gold-colored Dodge Durango. Inside the Durango was Lieber's 13-year-old daughter (also slightly injured) and mother-in law who was not hurt.
This I can tell you: KC-MO police were stretched thin all morning after this shooting. Metro (where the shooting happened) and Center Zone patrol divisions reported several "black-outs" or no officers to respond to calls.
Even MAST-EMS had to call outside agencies (twice) to help out in the City.
I wonder how many drunks the stationary sobriety checkpoints nabbed while out-of-town visitors were being killed on KC-MO streets?
Maybe the Chamber of Commerce can pony-up for a few more cops on the streets....
