Person suffers serious injuries in shooting - KCTV5

UPDATE

Suspect in deadly shooting that followed argument turns himself in

Posted: Updated:
KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Police are investigating a shooting where one person was killed Wednesday, and they believe it was connected to an argument.

The following day, the suspect in the homicide turned himself in to detectives at police headquarters through the help of the Ad Hoc Group Against Crime.

Officers were called shortly after 3:30 p.m. to the Blue Valley Court Townhomes, located on Wheeling Avenue, just north of 23rd Street.

Police on scene said a man and a woman in their early 20s were arguing behind one of the buildings, and the woman's uncle came outside to try and calm down the situation and protect his niece.

That is when the man the woman was arguing with pulled out a gun and shot the uncle. The uncle, later identified as 27-year-old Cordney C. Miller, died from his injuries.

A few relatives of the victim rushed the scene and crossed the crime tape, causing a secondary disturbance.

"We got him in cuffs, just trying to get him calmed down. They were getting in the crime scene, trying to get beyond the tape. We totally understand that they're upset, but we're trying to investigate a crime here and we just can't have people running all over the crime scene," said Darin Snapp with the Kansas City, MO, Police Department. "They're calming down, so hopefully we'll be able to let them go once the scene has calmed down."

The suspect left the scene in a silver Dodge Avenger. After he turned himself in to detectives on Thursday, Snapp said the case file will be turned over to the prosecutor for review.
