KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Police are at the scene of a triple homicide where two adults and one child have been killed.
On Tuesday night police were called to a residence in the 5900 block of E. 84th Street near Hillcrest Road on reports of a triple shooting.
Sources at the scene told FOX 4 that a 16-year-old boy came home around 9:30 p.m. to find his sister, her boyfriend and their infant all shot to death. The infant had apparently been shot in the head and the man had been shot in the chest. The woman’s injuries remain unknown.
No suspect description has been released either.
“Everybody wants to protect their rights while we’re doing all of that, but we’re forgetting that people are being killed at ridiculous rates,” Captain Tye Grant with KCPD said. “And we’re doing everything that we can do. I don’t know how you stop some things. You can’t put a police officer next to everybody.”
These three deaths puts Kansas City’s homicide count at 63 for 2015. The count is up 10 from this time last year. Kansas City police say they’ve been able to clear and solve more than half of this year’s homicide cases.
Police urge anyone with information about this homicide to call the TIPS Hotline at (816) 474-TIPS.
