UPDATE: Victim identified in Raytown shooting

UPDATE Sept. 12, | Police have identified the victim of Thursday's shooting as Danny Dean of Kansas City, Kan. 

Police believe that there were groups of people that met in the parking lot that evening for what investigators believe was some sort of criminal enterprise.

After some talking and visits back and forth between the various cars, the business ended abruptly with Dean being shot by someone from one of the other cars.

Police have provided a screen shot and short video of the car wanted in this investigation.  

ORIGINAL STORY |
