KANSAS CITY, Mo. --  A shooting in the city's east side, leaves a father dead Wednesday, and neighbors say it was his son who shot him.

Multiple shots ring out near 30th and Olive around 3:30 p.m.

"We heard pow, pow and she said, 'Sound like somebody is hammering out there.' Then we heard pow, pow, pow. I jumped up, ran on the porch, saw a guy running down the street with a gun in his hand," said Darryel Adams.

That guy, according to several neighbors, is the one who pulled the trigger on a 46-year-old man living at a home.  Neighbors reported seeing the victim tumble down steps by his home.  They say what's worse, is how the men knew each other.

"The guy that I heard screaming for help came out and when I came out, he was like, 'His son, his son, he shot him,'" Adams said.

Police spokesperson Capt. Steve Young said that relationship is something detectives are still investigating.  But Young said they did hear the suspect got onto a bus.  Then, about two-in-a-half miles away from the original crime scene, there was another one.

"A short time after that, we placed a gentlemen in custody in the area of 18th and Holmes so we're not really sure completely of the connection, but we believe he might be a suspect," Young said.

Officers closed off the area for some time.

The victim on the other hand, police say was taken to a hospital.

"He couldn't say anything. He couldn't say anything, he was barely even breathing," Adams said.

Police confirm, the victim died at the hospital.
