Belton police investigating two shootings that left homes with multiple bullet holes

BELTON, Mo. -- Belton police are investigating two shootings that occurred Tuesday night.

The first happened about 9:30 p.m. near Stacey Drive and Westover Road, police said. That's where police found a car and a home with multiple bullet holes. Police say no one inside the home was injured. Through questioning officers learned a white sedan was seen leaving the area shortly after the shooting.

Then about 11:30 p.m., police were dispatched to a home about a mile a way near Carnegie and North Scott Avenue. There police found a second home with multiple bullet holes. No one at that home was injured either, police said. They too saw a white sedan leaving the area not long after the shooting.

About an hour later at 12:40 a.m. Wednesday, police noticed a white Lexus with temporary tags near 58-Highway and Y-Highway. When officers tried to pull the driver over, they drove off. Police chased the vehicle onto I-49 into Grandview, but lost sight of it and ended the chase.

Police have not released any further suspect description.
