Investigators said 18-year-old Dejan Joksimovic, 18-year-old
Armin Hamidovic, and 22-year-old Delfino Elizondo were attending a
drinking party when the shots were fired. All three were shot in
the head, but detectives don't believe it was an execution style
Regan said people are talking to officers, but so far nobody has
admitted to seeing the murders. Investigators said most of the
partygoers were between ages 18-22. Detective Regan said many of
them ran away before the police arrived.
"People have this thing about not snitching, but people have to
learn we have to get back to that. Its not safe out here, because
they are our streets and we shouldn't be afraid," said Regan.
Students at North Kansas City High School are remembering one of
the victim's. Dejan Joksimovic was in his senior year. He moved to
America from Serbia two years ago.
"He was a good guy he never got into trouble he always did the
right things," said classmate Alex Bencun.
Grief counselors are at the school all week. Educators said the
counseling office has been packed.
"It's really hard to see your best friend that didn't even do
anything to die, it's really hard," said classmate Anthony
Students are raising money to help Dejan's family with burial
costs. Funeral arrangements haven't been made.
