Two people were transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after a shooting on the Plaza.

At about 7:48 p.m., shots rang out at 4686 Broadway Blvd. where one male and one female were hit in their lower extremities.

Witnesses say that a fight started at a nearby candy store. The fight then went out into the street and someone started shooting.

Police are investigating this incident.

Kansas City Mayor Sly James release the following statement on Saturday night: 

“Tonight I have mixed emotions. I’m thankful that the victims from tonight’s shootings are not suffering from life-threatening injuries and that no additional bystanders were hurt. However, I’m angry that gun violence continues to shatter lives in all parts of our city, whether it be on the Plaza or at 44th and Montgall, where I grew up.

We must send a message to those individuals whose use of guns to diminish the safety of all of our neighborhoods. Let’s bring this person to justice quickly by calling the tips hotline, 816-474-TIPS, if you have any information that could help.”
