KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A person of interest in Kansas City’s latest homicide was taken into custody shortly before 9 p.m. on Monday, at an apartment complex called Nob Hill in the 9400 block of Myrtle.

Several police sources tell FOX 4 that the person of interest is wanted in connection to a fatal shooting that happened at about 2 p.m. on Monday at 18th and Topping.

Police were watching the suspect throughout the evening while working to obtain a search warrant from the prosecutor’s office, and arrested the man while serving the warrant.

He needed medical attention, and was taken from the apartment complex in an ambulance. Sources say once he's released from the hospital, he'll be questioned about the homicide.

A large police presence remained at the complex Monday night, as officers continued to search an apartment that presumably belongs to the man in custody.

Witnesses at the homicide scene told FOX 4 that they noticed at least two men riding around the apartment complex in an SUV, and later heard a single gunshot and saw the victim collapse in the parking lot.

Police arrested someone earlier while interviewing a witness at the homicide scene after a foot chase. Investigators haven’t elaborated about that person’s involvement, but did say they were continuing to look for the men in the SUV.

As of Monday night it's unclear when charges will be filed in the case.
