2 Killed, 4 Injured In Separate Kansas City Shootings

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Two people are dead and four others were injured in separate overnight shootings in Kansas City, police said Monday.

Four were wounded near the city's popular Power & Light District after a concert, said Kansas City Police Sgt. Jake Becchina. The two who were killed were shot hours later elsewhere in the city, according to the Kansas City Star.

None of the injuries from the post-concert shooting were considered life threatening, police said. It wasn't immediately clear what led to the shootings. Police said they had detained one person but were still investigating. Few other details were available.

The first fatal shooting was reported at 3:30 a.m. Monday, involving a man who was dropped off at the hospital. The man was declared dead a short time later.

The other fatal shooting happened about 15 minutes later. Police responded to sounds of gunfire and found a man at a home who had been shot. He was declared dead at the scene.

Beccina said there's no indication that the separate shootings were related.
