KANSAS CITY, KS (KCTV) -

Detectives continue to look for the person who murdered two teens.

Someone shot and killed 17-year-old Le’Andrew M. Vaughn and 16-year-old Adarius Barber Sunday night. It happened at 61st Terrace and Haskell Avenue. A third victim was also hurt but expected to survive.

Those teens were cousins and best buds. A gathering will be held at 8:30 p.m. Wednesday on the Washington High football field for Barber, who had a love for football ever since he was a little tyke. 

He played varsity at Washington starting his freshman year. His coach says his physical stature was adult-like, but he still had a childlike innocence about him.

"His smile out of the side of his face and honestly one of the most innocent and respectful kids I have ever coached. It's really a loss," Washington High School football coach Scott Strenk said.

Barber's cousin was also killed that night was honored Monday night by his classmates and coaches. Vaughn's sport was baseball, which he played in a summer league and at Schlagle High School.

"I'm not just saying he was a good kid because he was killed. He really, truly was," Strenk said.

And everyone said the same thing about Vaughn on Monday.
