KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -
Police are investigating after two men died from shooting injuries in southeast Kansas City Wednesday afternoon.
The shooting was reported about 12:30 p.m. in the area of 81st Street and Hickman Mills Drive.
Two men were found shot in a building that had been an adult bookstore, but in recent years was turned into a recording studio. Police said both 53-year-old Mark L. Williams and 40-year-old Antonio E. Jones died.
Kansas City, MO, police Chief Darryl Forte said the business owner was investigating noises at the back of the building when he was shot. He and another man were the two victims. It's unknown if the two victims knew each other.
Police are now looking for a man carrying a handgun who ran from the scene on foot. The suspect is described as 5'5" in height, weighing roughly 150 pounds and wearing a blue hoodie.
Police were busy directly following the shooting and will remain busy in their investigation.
"They usually do area canvasses," Sgt Marisa Barnes said. "They can stop people as well, trying to figure out if anybody saw or heard anything."
Wednesday's homicides mark the sixth in 40 hours.
