KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Police now say that the man shot and killed outside a home in south Kansas City Wednesday night was in the United States from China studying at the International House of Prayer Church.
Xindong Hao, 38, is in the U.S. on a visitors visa. His wife and four children are also in the US with him, police said in a news release Thursday.
Police said Hao was walking along Bridge Manor Drive around 7 p.m. when the suspect targeted him.
Hao died at the scene from his injuries. A second person was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. A third person was grazed by a bullet, according to police.
Police said they took someone into custody they believe has information about this homicide, but police are still trying to figure out a motive.
“He was targeted by the suspect for no apparent reason,” KCPD officer Jacob Becchina said in the news release.
