KC shooting victim in critical condition

A 37-year-old man remains in critical condition today after he was shot in the chest Wednesday night at Linwood Boulevard and Gillham Road.

Police said the victim’s injuries were considered life-threatening.

An employee of a nearby restaurant found him lying on the sidewalk about 11 p.m. The victim asked the employee to call for help.

Police said they believe the victim was shot by a man he knew in a dispute. Investigators think the gunman threatened the victim at the same intersection a few days ago.
