Former city councilman believes he was intentionally targeted in drive-by shooting

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A former Kansas City councilman said his house was shot up and he believes he was the target of a drive-by shooting. Police said they are investigating the incident. It happened shorty before 1 a.m. on Thursday.

"I've lived here 26 years on this block," said John Sharp. "We've never had something like this and this wasn't a random shooting, I think I was targeted."

Sharp's neighbor said her car and home were also shot up. She said she doesn't feel safe in her house right now. Tamica Lige said one of the bullets entered her son's room where he was sleeping just feet away.

"I am outraged that we don't feel safe in our own home right now," she told FOX 4. "Your home is your comfortable place, you should always be able to find refuge at home and now we are scared in our home."

Former councilman Sharp said he heard 6 or 8 shots fired. He said one hit his garage door and another hit the back window of his car.

"One of the kids in this neighborhood could have gotten killed," Sharp said.

If you know anything about the shooting, police ask you call the TIPS hotline at (816)-474-TIPS.
