KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Two men died and a third man was critically wounded after a shooting in Kansas City.
Police spokesman Sgt. Jake Becchina said the shooting was reported around 8:45 p.m. after a fender bender crash. Becchina said a large disturbance after the crash led to the gunfire.
Officers from the Kansas City Police Department found two men who had been shot unresponsive in front of a home near East 51st Street and Agnes Avenue. A third man was found with gunshot wounds just north of the two men who died. The third man was taken to a hospital in critical condition.
Becchina said investigators are working to determine what led to the shooting and to identify the victims.
The two deaths were the 27th and 28th homicides of the year in Kansas City.
