KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Seven people were murdered in Kansas City, KS and Kansas City, MO over the weekend.

No one was arrested in any of those cases.

Now KCK Police Chief Terry Ziegler is asking for help finding the culprits.

"If people have information regarding the homicides, they need to speak out. Evil succeeds when good people do and say nothing,” Ziegler tweeted.

Look at this map detailing all the places and times where people were killed just in the past three days.

The first was at West 43rd and Lloyd streets in KCK.  Then, a man was found dead in the street at North First and Walker streets.

Police also found a man dead in a car at East 80th Street and Wayne Avenue.

The man has been identified as Darren Harris, 46, of Tulsa, OK.

One man was killed in a rolling gun battle at North Third and Waverly streets.

Two men died in a shooting at 28th Terrace and Myrtle Avenue. The two men have been identified as John W. Waldon, 31, and Andre L. Barnes, 49, both of Tulsa, OK. Harris was also of Tulsa. 

Despite the similarity between the three victims, police say the two scenes are being treated as separate investigations. 

"I have three grandkids and they always are out here playing in the yard - that's another thing that scares me about things around here," said Shon James, who lives near the scene. "Because right now it seems like there's a lot of kids getting killed around here, too. Innocent kids, like I said, these guns don't have eyes or nothing when they go anywhere. When they go up,  they come down no matter who they hit."

And then at 48th Street and Parallel Avenue, a man was gunned down putting laundry into his car. 

If you know anything about any of these murders, call police.
