Shooting At Ward Parkway Mall Leaves 3 Dead

At the Ward Parkway Shopping Center, which is located at 86th Street and Ward Parkway, a fatal shooting occurred on Sunday. Sgt. Tony Sanders, a spokesman for the police, reported that three individuals, including the shooter, died. Two more people sustained injuries.

It’s a large crime scene, Sanders remarked. Sanders said that the mall was not where the gunfire began. According to him, the events began with the investigation into the death of an elderly woman on the 3700 block of East 93rd Street.

Detectives learned the woman’s automobile was missing at that point. A description of the missing automobile was released by the detectives. According to reports, a police officer in the 1311 block of Bannister Road stopped a vehicle that matched the description of the missing vehicle around 3:11 p.m.

Sanders claimed that as the motorist pulled out a revolver and shot the officer in the arm, the officer was about to make the arrest of the man. Then, according to Sanders, the driver sped off. The officer gave the police a description of the shooter and the vehicle he was in. Shots were heard at Ward Parkway Shopping Center at about 3:27 p.m.

“We learned that a man had entered the shopping mall with a long gun when we were at 8500 State Line. He entered the shopping mall near the Target store. Everyone was exiting the mall, including the Target employees, and the mall itself was packed with hundreds of shoppers when the officers swooped in. The individual was confronted by them, and they shot and killed him as a result “explained Sanders.

Ward Parkway may have a gunman on the loose. Ward Parkway Center allegations of gunfire are being investigated by KCPD. Cassie Bradshaw, 19, of Kansas City, who was on her first day of work at Target, stated, “It initially sounded like firecrackers.”

She claimed that when shots were fired, she and two other persons were in a break room. She claimed that coworkers observed a white man with a rifle in his 50s. According to investigators, the shooter opened fire on two people on either side of his car as he parked in a parking place on the mall’s west side. They passed away there and then. Their identities have not been made public.

Witnesses described the incident as “extremely horrifying” to KMBC’s Marcus Moore. According to Moore, the shooter likely began firing in another area of the mall before moving to the Target location and carrying out more shooting. He claimed that shoppers began to hide in the aisles as they ran from the store.

“We were purchasing some shoes when we overheard some disturbance, including some screaming and yelling. We kind of turned around to see what was happening and noticed some people simply running. And we asked, “What’s happening?” After that, I was speaking with a woman who remarked, “I think I overheard someone say shots in the mall or something.”

We then moved on, heading towards the entry’s front door, when suddenly, as we were exiting the entrance, we heard three pops. We sort of dodged before leaving. After then, my son claimed to have seen a man emerge with blood on his face “David Cox, a witness, said

They had just pulled into a parking space, according to Queen Miller and her teenage daughter, who spoke to KMBC’s Lara Moritz, when they heard gunshots. “I instructed her to recline her seat. Just recline your seat. Avoid moving. I begged God not to let this man shoot. He appeared to be shooting at random “Miller said.

One witness claimed that she was at one of the mall’s movie theatres when police ran in and ordered everyone to leave, according to Chris Nagus of KMBC. To question witnesses about the incident, many were taken to Metro buses.
