Not knowing where exactly the gunfire was coming from- I still call 9-1-1.
It turns out it's up the street from me.
At 3:03 a.m.- KC-MO Metro and South Zones dispatch reports "a residential burglary in progress at 8604 Winchester" with suspects reported as "3 black males."
A man has been shot there- police determine after they arrive at 3:06 a.m. (as shown on CSW YouTube videos found HERE).
KC-MO FD-EMS transports "a 38-year-old male- shot in the chest- both arms and the upper thigh" to a Southland medical trauma center- in critical condition.
A police officer at the scene told CSW (moi) that this appeared to be "an armed residence robbery."
Occupants of the home- "an adult female and (2) children" were not injured.
Police were still investigating the scene as of 6 a.m..
No confirmed suspect information.
