Police are investigating the shooting of two men at a Kansas City apartment complex.

Police say the men were shot outside one of buildings at the Park Ridge Apartments on 81st Street and Troost Avenue. 



Officers found the two men around 2:30 a.m. while responding to a call of a shooting. Police say the shooting was a result of a drug deal gone bad. The victim, who was shot in the back, says he was robbed while trying to buy marijuana. 

An Investigator said one of the men is in critical condition. The other is in serious but stable condition. 



A resident said he heard eight or nine gun shots before police showed up. 

Police say technicians with the crime scene unit found shell casings but not a weapon.



Police are working on a suspect description.
