KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A family is desperate for answers after their loved one was shot and killed in front of several witnesses, none of whom is giving police much information.

It happened early Sunday morning within hours of a soul food festival in Parade Park in Kansas City, Mo., at the corner of Truman Road and Woodland Avenue.

Police said lots of people were gathered near the park when someone, for no clear reason, pulled out a gun, shot a man, then ran off.

The victim is 30-year-old Darrell Fennell. Officers said he died from gunshot wounds.

Detectives said the crime was not gang-related, no confrontation occurred and they do not know the motive for the killing.

However they said the corner was busy with other people leaving the festival who witnessed what happened; yet during questioning, few came forward with valuable information.

It's something that's left Fennell's family anxious to find out who targeted him and why.

"It hurts because who would do something like that?" asked Fennell's cousin, Nikki Franklin.

"What was the reason? To me there's never a reason to kill anybody, but I just want to know what happened."
