The Kansas City Police Department is currently investigating a triple homicide at 27th and Spruce.

The shooting took place just before 4 p.m. on Saturday afternoon with multiple shots fired.

The call was originally for shots fired but on the way to the scene it turned into a shooting call with multiple victims.

Upon arrival, EMS declared the victims dead at the scene. The victims included two men and one woman. The ages have not been confirmed at this time.

There is very little information at this time at what led to this. Detectives will be knocking on doors around the area to talk to people.
