KC police on the scene of double shooting: Man in critical condition, woman in serious

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A man is in critical condition after he and a woman were shot at about 6:15 a.m., at 67th and Askew on Wednesday.

The woman is in serious condition.

When FOX 4's Matt Stewart arrived, he saw that Kansas City police had one man in handcuffs in the back of a police van.  They said the man was not under arrest and did not call him a suspect. Police were also seen going in and out of a house.

A teenager said she heard gunshots and heard a scream for help. She was on her way to school and decided to go a different way because she feared what might happen.

Police say a man and woman were inside the home when another man showed up at the house.  There was some kind of struggle, followed by gunfire. Both victims are at the hospital.
