KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A man’s death months after he was shot has added to Kansas City’s 2022 homicide total.
Over the weekend, the Jackson County Medical Examiner’s Office alerted Kansas City police that a victim in a 2022 shooting had died from his injuries.
Kansas City police said 45-year-old Tyler E. Brown was shot last August at Peppermill Lounge South and died over the weekend.
Officers were called to a reported noise disturbance at the south Kansas City business around 2:30 a.m. Aug. 28. Officers heard gunshots and found a large crowd outside.
Police found one victim on the street suffering from non-life threatening injuries. Another victim was located in a vehicle nearby with life-threatening injuries, and someone dropped a third victim off at a hospital with life-threatening injuries.
A KCPD spokesperson said detectives have identified a potential suspect, and the case will be reviewed and submitted to the Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office for any potential charges.
