Posted: Updated:

One person has died following a double shooting in Kansas City.

The shooting was reported just before 6 p.m. at East 69th Terrace and Brooklyn Avenue. 

When officers arrived, they found two victims -- a man and a woman. 

The man was taken to a local hospital, where he died.

The woman was grazed by a bullet and was also taken to a local hospital. 

There is no suspect information at this time.

This is the 121st homicide of the year in Kansas City. 

Police have noted that several people were outside when the shooting happened. Therefore, they are asking anyone who knows anything to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS (8477). 

One man who has lived in the area for a long time told KCTV5 News that gun violence has plagued the community for years. He said he numb to it.

"No doubt about it, it’s a war zone," said Reggie Babbs. "We’ve been living in this neighborhood 41 years. It’s deteriorated so bad, you know. They ride up and down the street, shoot in the neighborhood. It’s an every-night thing. You hear it every night.”
