CSW BREAKING: At Least 5 Victims Total in Twin Kansas Cities Shootings

Back to Kansas City news now...

Two shooting scenes- one in KC-MO and the other in KC-KS have left one confirmed dead and at least two others seriously to critically injured early Saturday morning.

The extent of injuries to two others that arrived themselves at a Kansas City medical center from the KC-MO scene are not yet known...

That KC-MO scene was at an apartment building at 3950 Warwick in Midtown.

Police- sent to the Warwick address minutes earlier on a "disturbance" call- arrived at eight minutes after midnight reporting "a large crowd" had gathered outside.

A shooting victim was found inside minutes later- reported by EMS as a late-teens male- who had been shot "three to four times" in the middle and lower body sections- and taken emergency to a nearby medical trauma center.

About an hour and a half later- what was reported by police as two additional victims from this shooing showed up at Truman Medical Center's Lakewood campus hospital (TMC/East I call it)- and they were transferred by KCFD-EMS ambulance to another hospital who could better treat their unspecified gunshot wounds.

Police reported having two suspects "in custody" at the scene on Warwick and were further investigating the incident.

The second shooting scene was in east Kansas City KS- with one person confirmed dead and another critically-wounded.

That happened at a house in the 300 block of North 34th Street around 1:40 a.m. (initial PD call dispatch time).

A male dead by gunshot(s?) was found by police in a back bedroom.

A "34-year-old female" was transported by KC-KS FD-EMS to a hospital with a critical gunshot wound.

The police investigation was under way there.
