Police say that early Saturday morning, a guy was shot and killed in Kansas City.

A shooting was reported at 16th Street and Grand Boulevard at 1:30 a.m., said Sgt. Jake Becchina, a spokeswoman for the Kansas City Police Department. This area is near the Crossroads District.

Becchina said that when the cops got to the scene, they found the victim hurt in a parking lot. The guy was taken to the hospital by emergency services, where he was pronounced dead.

The tweet below verifies the news:

People in the area who heard gunshots and ran over to help the victim told the cops about it. They called 911 after that.

That night, a part of Grand Boulevard was closed while cops worked at the scene. The police are still looking for proof.
