Authorities are investigating a double homicide at a KCK apartment complex.
Police identified the victims as 26-year-old Shavar S. Buckner, of Kansas City, MO, and 17-year-old Earnest Stamps, of Kansas City, KS.
Police responded to a shots fired call shortly before 9 a.m. Tuesday to the Suntree Plaza Apartments located near West 47th Street just east of Roe Lane.
When officers arrived, they found Buckner and Stamps dead at the scene from apparent gunshot wounds.
Police said they were found in a basement hallway that led to the laundry room.
Officers also discovered a third victim wounded in one of the apartments. The man, who was discovered at 11:08 a.m., is expected to make a full recovery from his injury.
While an ambulance was taking that man to the hospital, two women in his apartment were taken into custody for questioning.Two bullet-riddled doors were carried by officers from the scene and a vehicle was towed from the parking lot.
Police believe the third victim was somehow involved in the shooting. They don't know if he was with the other two men or if he is one of the suspects.
Stamps' grandmother, Dolesta Stamps, said her family is grieving and asked those responsible or anyone with knowledge to come forward.
"Do what you have to do," she said. "I just wish somebody would speak up. Come forward. Just do the right thing. That's all I'm asking."
In an effort to gather information, detectives went door-to-door, trying to talk to residents in the building about what they heard and saw leading up to the attack.
As far as suspects and a motive, those are questions they are trying to get to the bottom of.
Dolesta Stamps said she is baffled.
"I'm trying to figure it out. We all are. We don't know nothing," she said. "Detectives can't tell us nothing right now or anything. We are all just lost. Truly, truly lost."
She said her grandson was visiting his brother, who lives in Building 9. She said the brother was on his way home from work when the murders occurred.
Resident Christopher Melton returned from work and saw all the police activity in the complex. He says there is some crime in the area but nothing like this.
"We have had problems all the time with graffiti, people breaking into cars and apartments; nothing happened to me. Dad's car was broken into once; that is it. Expect that anywhere, never expect someone to get shot over something," Melton said.
Officer Tom Tomasic said detectives are canvassing the area, talking with anyone who may have been in the area.
Authorities have yet to release any possible suspect information.
