KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Two juveniles are recovering after they were reportedly shot while inside a home in Kansas City, Kan., Wednesday night.
Police say both victims were shot at a home near 56th and Leavenworth Road.
While police have not released information about them, a family member told FOX 4’s Robert Townsend that that the two victims are a 16-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy, who are cousins. The family member says two males with AK47s drove by and sprayed the house with more than three dozen bullets, striking the family’s house and fence.
The girl was in the shower at the time and was shot in the arm, according to the family member, who also says the boy was shot in the leg while sitting in the front living room.
FOX 4 learned the boy is still in the hospital, while the girl was treated and released.
