KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Police in Kansas City, Mo., are busy investigating a shooting that left two people, including one child, injured early Monday morning.

Darin Snapp with the Kansas City Police Department says around 4 a.m., a woman and her nearly 7-year-old son were sitting on the porch of a home near 19th and Topping  drinking hot chocolate when a silver car drove by and started firing shots in their direction.

Snapp says someone inside that home exchanged shots with the person in the silver car. The person in the silver car then took himself to Truman Medical Center and said he was shot near 23rd and I-70, which Snapp says was incorrect. Police believe he was actually the person in the silver car firing shots at the town home.
