KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KCTV) - Right at 7:30 p.m. Monday, officers were called to a residence at E. 35th Street and Wabash Avenue for a shooting.

When they arrived, they were directed inside a residence. There, they found a man who had been shot and was unresponsive.

EMS was called to the scene, but the victim was declared deceased.

The KCPD’s preliminary investigation indicates the victim was inside the residence with one or more people. Then, shots were fired during an interaction and the victim was struck.

On Tuesday, the victim was identified as 33-year-old Antonio Wells.

Based on that preliminary information, officers detained a person of interest at the scene.

Detectives have been in touch with the prosecutor’s office. They will compile the results of their investigation for prosecutors to review for determination of applicable charges.
