Police believe man found dead in yard off Pence Avenue took own life
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KCTV) - Police said one person was found dead Friday morning in a Kansas City neighborhood.
Captain Leslie Foreman with the Kansas City Police Department said officers were called to the 2400 block of NE Pence Avenue about 10:30 a.m. after a neighbor saw someone who might need medical assistance.
When officers arrived, they found a man who had been shot lying in a yard, unresponsive. He was pronounced dead shortly after.
At the time, Foreman said police had not made a determination that the incident is a homicide, so officers were calling it a “suspicious death.”
On Monday, the police said the shooting is believed to be a suicide and not a murder.
