KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A man is dead and another in jail after a shooting Thursday night in a Northland park. FOX 4 spoke with a woman who said she was there.
The woman claimed she and a friend were parked in a truck with the windows down in a parking lot at Englewood Park just after 10 p.m., Thursday. She didn’t want Fox 4 to reveal her name or her face because she said she was still scared Friday afternoon when we spoke with her.
She said as she and her friend were facing one another, a man with a gun walked up, pointed a gun at her head and demanded her friend’s wallet. She said her friend had a gun of his own and shot and killed the man.
The woman said she and her friend left the scene so she could go home. The shooter returned to the scene where he called and met police. Police said Friday that man is in custody on a 24-hour hold while prosecutors decide whether this was a case of self-defense.
