On Saturday morning in Kansas City, a 34-year-old man was fatally shot inside an apartment complex.
According to Jake Becchina, a spokesman for the Kansas City Police Department, when officers arrived to the scene of the incident at 5:40 a.m., they discovered a guy with gunshot wounds.
Prior to the arrival of emergency medical services, officers provided first aid while transporting the victim to the hospital, where he was later pronounced dead, according to Becchina.
Rodney White was the victim, according to later police reports.
On Saturday morning, police officers and crime scene investigators processed the scene near an inside stairwell while the back of the building was cordoned off. Police, according to Becchina, believe the victim had a run-in with a suspect near a flat building common space that resulted in gunshots.
