KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City Police Department is investigating an overnight deadly shooting Saturday morning.

Police were called into an area of 40th and South Benton Avenue on a shooting call around 5:15 a.m. While officers were arriving, additional calls reported that a shooting victim was lying on the street.

When officers arrived, they located an adult male, who was later identified as 34-year-old Deron L. Chrisman, who appeared to be shot unresponsive. However, he died on the scene.

Vern Marshall, who has lived in the neighborhood for over three decades, voiced his frustrations towards the violence.

“When we get into confrontations, we have to learn how to understand each other and not go to violence, nearby resident, Vern Marshall said. We don’t need violence. It is not that important to lose a life.”

“Somebody got shot right there. What happened tonight is selfish, man. They took somebody’s life. Somebody loved that person,” Marshall said.

Even neighbors who hadn’t been there as long were bothered by what was going on. Neighborhood resident, Johnathan Camaros shared his thoughts.

“There are so many things that need to be changed, cause honestly I’ve been living here for 3 years and I’ve kind of seen a lot,” Camaros said.

The neighborhood is pleading for the violence to stop.

“Don’t do it, put it down, don’t even put it in your mind to kill this man for whatever,” Marshall said. Now another family in the metro going to bed tonight with one less loved one by their side.”

“Somebody that loved that person is hurting right now. Somebody is feeling way more than what happened there it’s way deeper you know,” Marshall said.

Police say there is no suspect information at this time, and no one is in custody.
