MetroRegion Kansas City Overnight News Headlines for 05-06 April 2014

It was a very busy late Saturday night and Sunday morning and here are the news stories that KSHB-41 received in my 6 am report...

KC-MO - Homicide - 12:30 am Sunday - Metro Zone police- Raytown Fire and KC-MO EMS went to 8401 East 55th Street on a reported assault.

There- they found a middle-age male who had been fatally stabbed by another male.  There had apparently been a fight over a female.

The suspect was taken into police custody at the scene.

KC-KS - "Unknown" medical call for an infant - 1:05 am - Police- Fire and EMS responded to an apartment at 629 South 71st Terrace where there was an unresponsive male infant with "CPR in-progress."

The child was apparently near-death- for the fire department's pumper crew left their truck alone at the scene and rode with the ambulance to the nearest medical center- Providence.

The infant was declared dead at the hospital.

I didn't hear if anyone at the apartment was arrested or of any possible suspect(s).

GRANDVIEW MO - Vehicle crash - 2:11 am - a single-car- going at high-speed- crashes into a utility pole- then rolled into the Western Sizzler Steakhouse at 12300 Blue Ridge Extention.

According to various police- fire and EMS reports pieced together- a portion of the restaurant building was "heavily-damaged-" and also "collapsed."

The "highly-intoxicated- 33-year-old male driver" was reportedly was not that badly hurt as he was transported to Research Med Center with a police car following behind the ambulance..

Warrensburg MO - Stabbing - 2:45 am - that Johnson county community's emergency services were called to Sharpe's Auto Sales at 300 East Russell where- according to various compiled reports- a "21-year-old male was stabbed in the back with a 5-inch blade."

It was reported that "CPR" was being performed on the victim before emergency crews arrived.

I was surprised a medical helicopter wasn't summoned to the scene- as a ground ambulance transported the critically-injured victim to Centerpoint Med Center in Independence.

No word on any suspect information.

Miami county KS - House fire - 2:48 am - fire crews from Drexel MO and MiCo responded to 35715 Metcalf- where a residence was heavily-involved in flames- according to a MiCo sheriff's deputy on the scene.

Didn't hear of anyone hurt or much else on this incident that occurred in the far southeastern part of that county.

KC-MO - Pedestrian struck - 2:51 am - this happened at 2805 Southwest Boulevard when- according to compiled emergency services reports- a "23-year-old male was struck by a car going 54 MPH."

The victim was "thrown over the hood" the ambulance's paramedic told Truman Med Center/West's emergency room and I guess to some degree of fortunately- the victim was "intoxicated" as his injuries were surprisingly not that severe.

The striking driver did stop at the scene.

KC-KS - House fire - 4:51 am - there was a reported "fire in the basement" of "a single-story" residence at 2424 Greeley.

The unknown-number of occupants escaped uninjured- and that fire was reported "out" at 5:06 am.

An investigation into the cause of this fairly-minor blaze was conducted.

Leavenworth county KS - Garage fire - 5:31 am - several LvCo fire departments as well as "Eudora" from Douglas county responded to that incident at 22580 Golden Road.

The structure was "heavily" involved in flames and there was reported to be vehicles inside and near the structure that were also burning.

At 5:35 am- EMS was sent to the scene on the report of a person "burned-"  but there wasn't any word on that person's condition when I went off duty at 6 am..

So if someone tells you that there isn't much that goes on overnights on weekends- you have my consent since 1991 to call them a liar....
