One person was killed in a shooting Friday in south Kansas City.

Just after 10:30 p.m., Kansas City Police Department officers were called to the area of Bannister Road and James A. Reed Road on a report of gunshots.

A few minutes later, a second 911 call came in, reporting a shooting in the 9500 block of James A. Reed Road, said Officer Donna Drake, a spokeswoman for the police department.

Officers located a male suffering from gunshot wounds.

Emergency crews who responded to the scene pronounced the victim dead, Drake said.

The shooting is the 110th homicide in Kansas City this year, according to data tracked by The Star.

Anyone with information may call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477.

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.
