CSW BREAKING: Young Person Injured in Grandview MO Drive-By Shooting
What is believed a young male is in at least critical condition after shots were fired into the van he was riding Sunday morning.
The incident occured in south Grandview around M-150 and U.S. 71 highways about 3 a.m..
The victim- in a "silver-colored minivan" ended up nearly a mile away after the shooting that reportedly occurred at the highways' junction.
The mother was reported with the victim as he was transported to a Metro Kansas City medical trauma center.
Initially- the only suspect information was that the unknown shooter(s?) were in "a green (colored) vehicle."
Later Sunday- with more complete GPD reports available to the public- police state "at least three black males in an olive-green colored SUV- possibly a Ford Explorer- fired at least one shot at the silver minivan at U.S. 71 and M-150 in an apparent case of road rage."
A "16-year-old male was shot-" police reported his injuries "not life-threatening."
Another "teenage female" in the silver minivan was "cut by flying glass."
The teens were returning home from an after-prom Grandview Schools-sponsored party in Belton when the incident occurred.
GPD also is looking for the female driver of a black-colored- mid-sized 4-door car that was also reportedly involved in the overall road rage incident.
