KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Police are investigating a fatal shooting at East Seventh Street and Norton Avenue. 

The victim has been identified as 55-year-old Harlan K. Dunbar of Kansas City, MO

Dunbar was found dead in the middle of Seventh Street near Lykins Square. The shooting call originally came in around 2 p.m. Thursday.

Detectives canvassed the neighborhood and went door-to-door asking if neighbors had seen anything. 

Police told KCTV5 News they have a description of the suspect, but no motive. 

The suspect is described as a black man with a thin build who is clean-shaven. He was wearing a grey hoodie.

“Again, this is a park area the suspect is brazen, callous, and does not care, and has no regard for life," said Kari Thompson. "So, we hope to bring him to justice very soon.”

This is the 120th homicide in Kansas City, Missouri so far this year.
