KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City, Missouri, Police Department has identified the two victims of a double homicide Sunday in the 2000 block of East 38th Street.

The two teenage male victims were identified as Devohn Dudley-Reese, 16, and Jazion Sanders, 18.

A third individual suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the shooting and was identified by KCPD as a person of interest.

That person was taken into custody by police Sunday night and has since been released, but could still be charged with a crime after a review by the Jackson County Prosecuting Attorney's Office.

KCPD said detectives will present a case file to prosecutors "for their consideration of applicable charges."

Police were called to the scene just before 2:30 p.m. on Sunday and located the two victims in front of a residence. They were declared dead on the scene.
