Police search for a killer as a grief stricken high school searches for answers after losing a student the city's latest homicide.
Police responded to a double shooting about 10 p.m. at an apartment complex in the 7600 block of Monroe Avenue in Kansas City, MO.
Police say 16-year-old Jalisa Reed was shot and killed outside the East Hills apartments where she lived. A 20-year-old woman was also shot, but is in stable condition as she continues her recovery after being injured.
Police are not sure if the victims were the intended targets of the shooter. Police said there appears to have been numerous people outside the apartment complex when the shooting occurred.
Reed, who died at the scene, would have been 17 in June. She was a high school student at Schlagle High School in Kansas City, KS.
No one would comment this afternoon, although one person did tell us he heard the shot from his apartment.
Police say while the investigation is ongoing, they are trying to figure out if Reed was the target or just caught in the crossfire.
So far, police have not made any arrests in connection to Reed's death.
Police urge anyone with information to call the Homicide Unit at 816-234-5043 or the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477.
