KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City, Kansas, Police Department is investigating a double homicide that occurred Thursday night in the 2200 block of Birch Drive.

Officers were dispatched to an apartment on a shooting call, according to a release from KCKPD, which did not indicate what time the call was placed.

When police arrived at the Silver City Apartments, which are located across the street from Argentine Middle School, they discovered two juvenile males dead from gunshot wounds inside a residence.

The dead teenagers were identified Friday afternoon as Samuel Guess, 14, and Antonio Johnson, 14. Both were students in the KCK Public School District.
