KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A 23-year-old man is dead following a shooting in the parking lot of Waldo Heights Apartments early Thursday.

Investigators said the shooting, which has been classified as a homicide, happened around 7:50 a.m.  at the complex near 81st and Campbell.

Witnesses said they heard gunshots, but when they looked outside, they didn't see anything. Someone later found the victim, identified as 23-year-old Darian Sanders of KCMO, near a white truck.

Police have not released any suspect information.

They did say they are looking for a dark colored-Chevrolet Malibu that was dirty. Investigators said a vehicle matching that description left the scene shortly after the shooting.

Police told FOX4 they're not classifying this as a suspect vehicle, they just want to talk with the driver and find out if they saw what led up to the deadly shooting.
