Le'Andrew M. Vaughn, 17, was pronounced dead at the scene. Police said the two other victims were transported to a hospital in critical condition. Adarius Barber, 16, died from his injuries. Both were from Kansas City, Kan.

Police said all three victims were found in a car.

FOX 4's Molly Balkenbush is at the scene and spoke with a man who said he is the grandfather of one of the victims. He said his grandson is only 16 years old.

He said he's devastated and angry, and that this violence has got to stop.

"The community has to come together. We have to stop these thugs out here, these hoodlums out here killing each other. Thugs, or whoever they are. We need to stop them in their tracks," he said.

He said he doesn't know exactly what happened, but believes this may have been a drive-by shooting. He said his grandson was visiting relatives in the area.

There is no suspect information at this time. Anyone with information is urged to call the TIPS hotline at (816) 474-TIPS.
