KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Kansas City, Kan., officers are on the scene of a homicide Monday.

Tom Tomasic with the Kansas City, Kan., Police Department  said that a city worker was mowing when the worker found a body in the woods near 46th and Leavenworth Road around 8:30 a.m.

Officer Tomasic said the body does not appear to have been in the woods for long, and the victim appeared to have died from a gunshot wound.
