Kansas City shooting: 1 dead, up to 6 injured in shooting at Halloween party, police say
One person was killed and as many as six others were injured in a shooting Monday night at a Halloween party at a home in Kansas City, Kansas, police said.
Between 70 to 100 high school-aged students were gathered at the home when the shooting occurred, Kansas City Police Chief Karl Oakman said during a news conference. CNN affiliate KMBC.
The shooting was reported shortly after 9 o’clock in the evening, when a group of guests did not invite to leave the party, the chief said. At least one person in the group began shooting into the crowd at the party, according to Oakman.
“The owners asked them to leave. When they left, they started shooting at the house. They shot randomly,” Oakman said.
At least two of those injured were in critical condition, Oakman said.
Information about the party was posted on social media, and it was “invite only,” Oakman said.
The suspects were in a dark or gray SUV, Oakman added.
The police chief expressed his frustration over the violence, calling the shooting disturbing and unacceptable.
“These things in the community have to stop. There are too many guns out there. This was a party with high school students,” Oakman said. “Everybody has guns now. We need to be smarter than that.”
No arrests were made Monday night.
