Police on Tuesday identified two homicide victims who were found dead Monday morning in a Kansas City apartment.
Mona Lisa Bruce, 30, and Jamell Funderburke, 31, appeared to have been shot when officers found them just after 6 a.m. at the Citadel Apartments in the 1600 block of Citadel Drive. They died at the scene.
People who called 911 said they heard a verbal argument followed by the sound of gunshots, said Sgt. Jake Becchina, a spokesman with the Kansas City Police Department.
No suspect description was immediately available.
Gun violence is the subject of a statewide journalism project The Star is undertaking in Missouri this year in partnership with the national service program Report for America and sponsored in part by Missouri Foundation for Health. As part of this project, The Star will seek the community’s help.
