I’m starting to feel safer already. How about you?
A 3-year-old was shot dead Thursday morning inside a townhouse in the 1800 block of Topping in Kansas City, sparking outrage from the city’s police chief and top prosecutor.
Police were called to the home at 10:32 a.m. and found a boy with a gunshot wound, said Capt. Stacey Graves, a police spokeswoman. Paramedics tried to revive the child but were not able to. He died at the home. Investigators are trying to determine if the shooting was accidental, Graves said.
Police Chief Darryl Forté advised the death could have been prevented. He cautioned people to be responsible and to secure their own firearms. How’s that working out, Chief?
