Randolph MO Motel Triple-Shooting Victims Identified- Remembered

It was reported here at CSW first in Kansas City- the Saturday morning shooting of 3 young men during a party in a room of a motel in Randolph MO..

Randolph is a small- unincorporated community surrounded by Kansas City MO on the north bank of the Missouri river along I-435 and near the Ameristar Casino entertainment complex.

It was reported that the 3 victims- 18-year-old Dejan Joksimovic- 18-year-old Armin Hamidovic and 22-year-old Delfino Elizondo had been at a party in Independence that had been broken up by police who had been called there on a noise disturbance.

The three young men and some other Independence party-goers then went to the Red Roof Inn motel on Randolph Road north of Missouri (M)-210 where apparently another party was taking place in Room 224 there.

About 3:15 a.m.- the 3 young men were shot in the head- possibly by a suspect or suspects described in the original CSW story.

One of the victims died at the scene- the other 2 died later at North Kansas City Hospital.

One of the young men- Dejan Joksimovic- had just moved to the Kansas City area 2 years ago from Serbia- and was featured in the story from KSHB-41 NBC Action News embedded here.
