Homicide suspect fatally shot by police at Admiral and The Paseo

Around 12:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 23, Kansas City Police Department (KCPD) officers shot one person, believed to be a homicide suspect, at Admiral Boulevard and The Paseo.

The person struck by police gunfire was transported to the hospital, where he was later died. The deceased was later identified as Ennice Ross Jr., a 26 year old Black male from Kansas City, Mo. The next of kin has been notified.

No officers were injured in the incident.

All KCPD officers involved in the incident today will be on routine administrative leave as is normal in a police involved shooting, said Sgt. Jake Becchina of the KCPD Media Relations Unit.

According to KCPD, the scene was stable by 1 p.m. Friday.

As with all officer-involved shootings, the Missouri State Highway Patrol (MSHP) will be investigating.

“A preliminary investigation indicates, at [approximately] 12:30 p.m. today [KCPD] located a vehicle occupied by a homicide suspect,” the MSHP said later that afternoon. “Officers conducted a felony traffic stop and gave verbal commands to all occupants. [Three] of the occupants cooperated [with] commands to exit the vehicle.”

MSHP said the suspect refused to comply, remaining in the vehicle. He subsequently pointed a handgun at officers and fired towards the officers. According to MSHP, officers returned fire striking the suspect.

This is an ongoing investigation. Our article will be updated as new information becomes available.
