Three killed, two injured in Kansas City shooting

KANSAS CITY Mo. (Reuters) - Three people were killed and two more critically injured in a shooting spree in a south Kansas City neighborhood on Tuesday afternoon, police said.

Law enforcement officials were called to the residential area known as Woodbridge, near an upscale country club, shortly before 1 p.m. They found five victims with gunshot wounds, three of whom died at the scene, according to a statement by the Kansas City, Missouri, police department.

Two people were transferred to hospitals with life-threatening injuries, police said.

The shooter was still at large, and police were asking for help finding a tan-colored SUV they said was missing from the scene of the shootings.
