Three teens shot in Kansas City near 40th and The Paseo

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Police are investigating a shooting Friday night that left three teens injured.

Police say the shootings happened at two different scenes -- one is near 40th and The Paseo and the other near 40th and Flora.

KCPD Capt. Lionel Colon said three juveniles were shot and suffered non-life threatening injuries.

A neighbor said the three victims are 14, 15 and 16 years old. She said the 16-year-old told her he and his two friends were playing basketball at a park nearby. Within moments, a man walked up, pulled out a gun and shot him and his friends.

The teens' neighbor said the bleeding 16-year-old staggered between houses and then collapsed on a sidewalk. He was shot in his leg and hand, she said. She called 911.

"it was real scary because it was right in our area. We have little kids right here on the block that be outside. So for something to happen like right here in our area, that's real scary," she said.

The neighbor said the teens knew the suspected shooter, but the man ran. Colon said police do not have any suspect information at this time.

Police are asking anyone with information to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477.
