News

KANSAS CITY, Kan. — The Kansas City, Kansas Police Department said they have located the suspect involved in a homicide and other crimes earlier Wednesday.

Police said they located the red Hyundai Tucson Wednesday afternoon that at 14th Street and Prospect Avenue in Kansas City, Missouri. The female suspect was reported to have stolen the vehicle earlier in the day.

The female suspect, who has not been identified at this time, is described as a white woman in her late 20s, early 30s.

Police confirmed the woman is a suspect in a homicide that took place shortly after 1 p.m. near 79th Street and Sandusky Avenue as well as a home invasion.

“That’s good friend, we used to work at the same company. He was a general manager. He was a good guy. He didn’t do anything wrong. He didn’t deserve this at all. He was always helping my grandfather, my uncle. He shouldn’t have loss his life,” said neighbor of the victim, Nick Jackson.

“We think possibly she may have broken into the house and was hiding from us looking for her. We believe he may have come home and saw an opportunity to get a vehicle, whatever happened, he was shot and killed,” said Officer Tom Tomasic with KCKPD.

The woman has also been reported to be involved in multiple crashes Wednesday in the KCK area and attacked an elderly individual who was taken to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Anyone with information regarding these incidents are asked to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477.

“This is one that we haven’t had an instance like this in a very long time. It’s been an all-day event that she, that we know of her has been stealing cars, getting into wrecks, breaking into houses, and possibly now led to a murder scene,” Tomasic said.
