Previous coverage:

Kansas City police have identified a person of interest in a homicide that happened in the area of 6th and Cleveland on Friday. 

Police are trying to find 25-year-old Anthony "Tony" Nevels for questioning with regard to the homicide. He is should be considered armed and dangerous. If you know where he is, you are asked to call the homicide unit at 816-234-5043.

On Friday at about 4:40 p.m., officers got a call that said someone was armed and shots had been fired. Then, police were told someone had been shot. 

When officers arrived, they saw the victim's body laying halfway in the road, off the sidewalk area, suffering from a gunshot wound. 

The Kansas City Fire Department declared the victim to be deceased. 

The victim has been identified as 35-year-old Bobbie R. Bailey.

A motive has not been identified. 

Detectives went door-to-door, asking if neighbors have any information about the crime. Anyone with information about the homicide or Nevels' location is asked to contact police or call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477.

Three months ago, police were on the same block after a 23-year-old man was shot and killed.

Witnesses said Freddie Nevels was in his front yard when an unknown person gunned him down. Police still have not found his killer.

Also, a week ago, 55-year-old Harlan Dunbar was killed near E. 7th Street and Norton Avenue, which is just a block away from Friday's homicide.

Dunbar was found dead in the middle street. Detectives at that time canvassed the neighborhood, but his killer is still on the loose. 

Police said it's too early to say if Friday's homicide is related to the homicide in July.
