Overnight shootings in KC wound four

Four men were injured in three unrelated shootings last night in Kansas City.

The first shooting occurred about 8:45 p.m. inside a home near Belleview Avenue and Holly Street. Police said a resident at the home was arguing with one of two other men who had come over. The resident told police one of the two men stabbed him, so he shot the men, who then fled.

Both men turned up at area hospitals with gunshot wounds and were admitted for treatment. Police said they need to interview the men to determine exactly what happened at the home.

The second shooting occurred about an hour later in a home near 28th Street and Park Avenue. Police found a man in a hallway with critical gunshot wounds. Further details were not available.

The third shooting occurred at 11:15 p.m. in the 3900 block of Manheim Road. A man told police he was standing in front of a home when a dark-colored car with tinted windows pulled up and an occupant opened fire. The victim was struck in the leg. The victim and witnesses were uncooperative with police who were trying to investigate the crime.
