Two people were killed early Saturday morning in an apparent drive-by shooting near 38th and Park Avenue in Kansas City, Missouri. 

Officers were called to the area around 4 a.m. after reports of shots being fired. When police arrived, they found a man and a woman shot to death inside a silver Fiat. 

The City of Kansas City, Missouri, Aviation Department confirms that both of the victims who passed away were employees at KCI Airport. They have been identified as Marva L. Amrine and Terrell K. Nance. Amrine was a current bus operator at KCI and Nance was a retired bus operator. 

More than a dozen shell casings were found at the scene. Police are looking for a newer model of a black Jeep Wrangler-type vehicle with a black spare tire and silver rims. 

Police were alerted to the shooting thanks to the city’s ShotSpotter system. The technology registers the sound of gunfire and is sensitive enough to differentiate it from fireworks or explosives.  It is also able to accurately place occurrences for a quick police response.

Kansas City has been using The ShotSpotter system since October of 2012 and covers 3.55 square miles in the city.

The investigation is ongoing. If you have any information about this case, please call the TIPS hotline at 816-474-TIPS.
