KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kansas City police are investigating after a man was found dead in the street early Friday morning.

Officer Darin Snapp with the Kansas City Police Department say officers were dispatched to 23rd and Drury around 2:30 a.m. in regard to a person down in the street.

Responding officers found a man in his mid 20s dead from an apparent gunshot wound.

That victim was identified on Monday as 23-year-old Michael C. Day.

Rosilyn Temple with Mothers in Charge is called out to homicide investigations to support victims' families. She said she is frustrated that people in the community don't give police the tips they need.

"We get aggravated with the wrong people," Temple said. "We need to get aggravated with the perpetrators who are taking our children, our loved ones' lives."
