2 dead, 1 critical after man shoots family members
KANSAS CITY - Two people have died and a third was in critical condition after police say a Kansas City man shot his uncle and mother before turning the gun on himself.
Kansas City police spokesman Darin Snapp says officers responded to a shooting on the city's north side at 3 p.m. Friday and found two victims in a pickup truck parked in the home's driveway.
They say the shooter's uncle was dead in the vehicle and his mother was taken to a hospital in critical condition.
Arriving officers saw a 40-year-old man go into the home carrying a handgun, and later they heard a shot from inside the residence.
Officers went into the home around 5 p.m. and found the suspect dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
