KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Two people died in a murder-suicide outside of the Milestone Academy day care center in Grain Valley on Monday evening, police said.

Officers responded to the scene on reports of shots fired just before 6 p.m.

When they arrived, they located two people dead in the day care's parking lot, Grain Valley Police Chief Ed Turner said.

A preliminary investigation indicates the incident was a murder-suicide, though no other information on the people injured was immediately available.

No children were injured and Turner said the incident appeared to be an isolated domestic dispute.

In a Facebook post, the center said it would be closed Tuesday due to the shooting.

No word on what led to the violence.
