Victims identified in Wednesday’s three homicides in Kansas City

 

 

All three victims in yesterday’s homicides have been identified.

In four hours, there were three homicides in Kansas City on Wednesday, Nov. 6, bringing the total number of homicides in 2019 to 126.

Just after 3 p.m. Wednesday, officers were dispatched to the 5200 block of Olive on a shots fired call.

Officers found Michael K. Jones, 44, of Kansas City in the street suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. He was declared deceased at the scene.

According to police, witnesses say they heard multiple gunshots and looked outside and saw Jones in the street as a black truck left the scene driving westbound.

Just before 6 p.m., officers were called to the 3200 block of Brighton on another sound of gunshots call.

While officers were on the way, they received information that a shooting victim had arrived at McDonald’s at 31st and Van Brunt.

As officers arrived at the McDonalds, they found Kimberly Harris, 37, and declared her deceased at the scene.

Harris was the passenger in a vehicle that arrived at McDonald’s and detectives are talking with the driver to get a better idea of what led up to the shooting.

Investigators are processing both scenes at McDonald’s as well as the 3200 block of Brighton for evidence.

Around 7:15 p.m., officers were called to the 2400 block of Chelsea on a third call for the sound of gunshots.

According to police, callers stated they heard multiple gunshots in front of a residence.

When officers arrived, they found Xavier Young, 18, of Kansas City, on the front porch of a residence and declared deceased at the scene by EMS.

Detectives are interviewing residents that live nearby for more information.

Authorities say there is no indication that the three shootings are related in any way.

There is a $25,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in each case, bringing the total possible reward money to $75,000.

Detectives are asking anyone that may have seen or heard anything to call the homicide unit directly at 816-234-5043 or the TIPS Hotline anonymously at 816-474-TIPS.
