Neighbors on edge after shooting at KC apartment complex

Posted: Updated:

People who live in an east Kansas City apartment complex say they are afraid to go outside after a man was shot there Sunday.

Police got the call about 1:30 p.m. that shots were fired in the 6400 block of Manchester Avenue.  But officers couldn't find anyone who had been shot.

Witnesses say the man was fighting with another man when they began firing shots at each other.  They fled the scene in separate vehicles.

Shortly after the shooting, a man in his 20s showed up at a nearby hospital with a gunshot wound. Police said he has life-threatening injuries.

A second male in his 20s arrived at another local hospital about 2 p.m. He told detectives he was shot near the 4500 block of Wabash Avenue.  However, detectives have found no evidence at this location.

Police are interviewing witnesses and are trying to determine if the shootings are related.

No arrests have been made.

Anyone with information about the shooting is urged to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS.
