KANSAS CITY, Kan. — A Kansas City, Kansas, 2-year-old is recovering after a double shooting in broad daylight. An 18-year-old was killed.
The shooting happened Saturday near North 5th Street and Oakland Avenue.
That 2-year-old’s mom told FOX4 the toddler was just outside playing with her brothers and sisters when the shooting happened.
The child screamed for help once the bullet hit, and then in turn, the girl’s mom screamed out for neighbors to call 911.
Both victims — the teen and the 2-year-old — were taken to the hospital where the 18-year-old died. The 2-year-old is still recovering but will survive. The two victims were not connected.
