Kansas City police are investigating a homicide after a 19-year-old was killed on Friday. The victim has now been identified.

Officers went to the 100 block of NW Harlem on a call about a shooting on Friday evening.

On Saturday, the victim was identified as 19-year-old Robbin Baska from Kansas City.

Baska's father said that she was staying with her mother at the apartment where the shooting happened. 

He said someone had knocked at the door while Baska was sleeping on the floor. Baska's mother answered the door, then the suspect forced their way in. 

The mother then accidentally stepped on Baska, which woke her up. The suspect then shot and killed her.

When officers arrived, they found her inside in the room and the fire department declared her deceased. 

There is no suspect information at this time. 

Anyone with information about this homicide is asked to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS (8477).

A GoFundMe has been created to assist with funeral expenses.
