CSW BREAKING: Four Shot During KC-MO "Rolling Gun Battle"

That's how the incident was described over police radio early Sunday morning...

A KC-MO Fire department EMS unit arriving at Research Medical Center (RMC) with a patient at 2:57 a.m. encountered four people who had been shot who were headed for the emergency room.

Police were called- and over the next 20 minutes or so- it was determined there had been a "running gun battle" on "northbound U.S. 71" somewhere between 75th Street and Meyer Boulevard.

A possible suspect vehicle-  "containing unknown occupants-" was told to be "a dark (colored Chrysler) PT Cruiser."  

The conditions of the four that arrived at RMC were unknown- and an alert was issued to other Metro hospitals in case other victims arrived.

Ok this crap has to come to an end somehow.

I mean I am not out in KC-MO at 3 in the morning but still daylight gun battles in a public mall night time gun battles on public streets when are the elected leaders and these so called civic leaders going to get together and slow this down or outright stop it?

SD- I don't know how exactly any governmental agency could stop these types of random violence other than severly curtailing our freedoms (checkpoints- etc).

It's kind of like one of those "damned if you do- damned if you don't" things.

Re the Indep. Center shooting- I'm having all kinds of scenarios going through my brain regarding citizens' 'concealed carry' rights.

If we'd had a bunch of citizens involved- it COULD have resembled the OK Corral!

Well we both bring up points but as always no solutions.

Criminals taking over the streets can't keep growing either.

The goverments city and state are the ones who will have to stop it.

Nobody wants to give up privacy but nobody wants to worry about being shot either every minute of the day.

What do you mean resemble the OK Corral it was just like the OK Corral two sides shooting at each other.
