KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kansas City Missouri Police are looking for clues into who killed a 24-year-old woman while she was working at her motel clerk job early Sunday morning.

Kassandra Peters was working the late night shift at the Travelers Inn at 31st & White when someone shot her.

According to police, at about 1:00 a.m., they received a call reporting gunshots.

When they arrived, they found Kassandra Peters, 24, suffering from a gunshot wound. She was taken to an area hospital where she later died.

The victim's mother says she was always a happy person. She said her daughter was concerned about safety as she worked at the hotel, but she hoped the job was temporary. She was interested in becoming a nurse's aid.

"She had big plans," the victim's mother said. "She loved people and people loved her."

Police don't have much of a description of the suspects. Even though there are cameras in the motel lobby, it is unclear if they were recording at the time of the shooting.

In March, another person- a man- was found beaten to death in the hallway of the motel. Police made an arrest in that crime.

If you have any information about who killed Kassandra Peters, call the TIPS Hotline at (816) 474-TIPS.
