Police: Plaza shooting victim, suspect didn't know each other

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – A shooting Saturday evening on the west side of the Country Club Plaza that left a teenage girl with a graze wound from a bullet might have been random, police said Monday.

In a press release, police say the victim was in the back seat of a car traveling northbound on Jefferson just south of 47th Street when the occupants of the car heard gunshots.

After speeding away, the occupants of the car located police a couple blocks away, where the victim received treatment.

The shooter was described as a black male between 18-22 years-old, about 5’10”, 120-150 pounds, wearing a black shirt, gray fleece jacket and dark pants.

Police say the shooter was part of a group of males in their late teens to mid-20s wearing dark clothing.

Detectives say they remain unclear about the motive.

Police are asking anything with information about the incident to call the TIPS Hotline at (816) 474-8477.
