KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) - Police are investigating a homicide Sunday morning.

Officers were called to the 3700 block of Benton Boulevard just before 7:30 a.m.

When they arrived at the location, they were directed inside a residence where they located an adult black male in his 20s who had been shot. Medical personnel declared the victim deceased at the scene.

Detectives are now talking with people who were at the scene when officers arrived. They will also be canvassing for witnesses in the area. Crime scene investigators will be processing the scene for evidence as well to help detectives determine what led up to the shooting.

KCTV5 News asked police why there were a large number of police personnel at the scene and they said Federal Agents were at the scene as part of “Operation: Legend.”

If anyone saw or heard anything this morning or has any information, they are asked to contact the Homicide Unit directly at 816-234-5043, or the TIPS Hotline anonymously at 816-474-TIPS.

There is a $25,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in this case.
