Kansas City police looking for vehicle in connection to deadly double shooting

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City police are attempting to locate a vehicle in connection to a deadly double shooting earlier Tuesday.

The suspect vehicle is described as a black 2002-2008 4-door Dodge Ram 1500 pickup pulling a trailer with landscaping equipment.

The deadly shooting was reported just after 3:15 p.m. near 79th and Blue Ridge Blvd.

When police arrived, they found both the driver and a passenger in a black Ford Mustang injured with gunshot wounds. The passenger was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

“The individuals involved in this did not care about anyone else,” Capt. Tim Hernandez with the KCPD said. “They’re out there firing guns during rush hour. Anyone could have been hit.”

The victims names have not been released.

“This summer alone, we’ve had plenty of incidents where innocent bystanders, adults and children, have been hit by bullets that were intended for other individuals that were involved in confrontation,” Hernandez said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477.
