CSW BREAKING: Shooting At Kansas City's Power & Light District Is Latest Homicide
The shots that eventually killed what KC-MO FD-EMS Unit 567 termed "a mid-20;s male" were reportedly heard by a Center Zone police officer on patrol near "15th Street and McGee" at 1:18 a.m. Saturday morning.
Less than two minutes later- another police officer reports finding the wounded man "at Truman and McGee-" outside of the Retro nightclub.
The victim "is unresponsive" to the officer's questions- EMS states the victim has two gunshot wounds- one "entering the stomach and exiting his back."
The man was in very critical condition when transported to Truman Medical Center-Hospital Hill (TMC/West)- but he later died there of his wounds.
There was no suspect information available- and police investigators even went to the KANSAS CITY STAR newspaper building to see if the shooting had been caught on The STAR's video security cameras.
KC-MO's homicide rate rises further into the 40's- and now even the heavily-publicized/taypayer-subsidized Power and Light District is not safe from the murderous gunfire.
