Early Sunday Morning Rolling Gun Battle in Grandview Leaves Motorist With Child "Badly Shaken"

Shootings are not like an imaginary 'boogie-man-' if you ignore them- they just won't go away.

Except for this blog- only one local 'mainstream' news media outlet- KMBC-9 News- reported all three of late Saturday's shootings in the southeast Kansas City-Raytown MO area that wounded at least nine people.

What happened in Grandview around 2:45 am Sunday morning will probably get the same local 'news' treatment...

According to a witness who reported to Grandview police- shots were fired between two vehicles- "an orange (colored) car and a black pickup" truck.

A car belonging to that witness was struck at least once by one of the flying bullets.

Fortunately- the woman or the 4-year-old child in her car wasn't hit.

A GPD officer sees the black pickup possibly involved in the incident around 2:55 am on Main Street east of I-49- and police end up chasing that suspected truck with "two occupants" into a southeast Kansas City MO neighborhood around East 90th Street and Kentucky.

The two people in the truck bailed out and ran- they hadn't been caught as of 3:30 am Sunday.

If Raytown and Grandview were threatened by a severe storm- you can bet the farm Kansas City's news media wouldn't ignore one second of Mother Nature's wrath.

Every citizen is just at risk with the random gun violence in the main Metro city and it's first-ring suburbs- and it's a story that needs to be told everytime it happens.
