Posted: Updated:

Police are investigating the shooting death of a man inside a duplex on the city's east side.

Officers were called just before 10:30 a.m. Monday to a home located in the 2400 block of Euclid Avenue in regard to a shooting.

When they arrived, they found two shooting victims inside the home. Police say at least five people were inside when a fight broke out.

Witnesses told police that a man arrived at the home and was let inside. An argument erupted between the man and the homeowner with the visitor shooting the homeowner in the chest. The homeowner returned fire, killing the man, police said.

The homeowner, who was in his 20s, is hospitalized in serious condition.

"We are hoping the man at the hospital can give us more information," said Kansas City police Officer Darin Snapp.

The man who was killed was in his 30s. His identity has not been released yet.
