KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

One person has died after a shooting on Friday near 54th Street and Park Avenue.

The shooting happened at about 3:40 p.m.

When police arrived at the scene, they found a man in his mid-40s outside a home, in the street with no signs of life.

There is no suspect information or motive at this time. The victim's identity has not yet been released.

Neighbors said they heard several shots and saw someone attempting a quick getaway in a vehicle with the windows down. 

Neighbors are upset because young children coming home from school in the evening had to witness the crime scene outside their homes.

Kansas City, Missouri is now at 106 homicides. 

The leader of Mothers in Charge and a trusted voice in the community, Rosilyn Temple, said people need to put an end to the senseless killings. 

"It was one here earlier this year," she said. "When are we going to wake up and stand up and speak out?"

Anyone with information is asked to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477.
