KANSAS CITY, Mo. — It was a busy night for Kansas City police. Detectives are investigating a shooting, a slew of car break-ins and an armed robbery that all occurred within a few blocks downtown.
Most of the victims were attending the Rod Wave concert at the T-Mobile Center on Sunday night, and when the show ended, police said they were inundated with calls for the next hour.
All the incidents happened within a few blocks, from Truman Road to 12th Street between Main and Oak streets.
As they were leaving the show, many concert-goers and others downtown found out their cars had been broken into. As many as 100 cars were broken into.
Around the same time, someone fired shots into the crowd leaving.
The officers that were investigating the cars being broken into immediately called out the sound of shots and responded to that area,” Public Information Officer Jake Becchina said in an email Monday. “In addition to those officers there were additional on duty officers in the area, there were officers working off duty at power and light and officers working off duty at T-Mobile Center as well.”
Four people were injured in all. One man and woman were taken to the hospital. One man who was grazed was treated and released at the scene. A juvenile victim that was also grazed went to the hospital in their own vehicle.
All the victims suffered non-life threatening injuries.
Then around 1 a.m. police received a call of an armed robbery at the B&B Theatre at 14th and Main streets. No injuries were reported there. Police are looking for two men in a white car with tinted windows.
In regard to the car break-ins, police said they didn’t have time to respond to all the reports. If your car was broken into and you’d like to make a police report, call Kansas City Police at 816-234-5111.
