KC Streetcar service resumes after route blocked by homicide investigation

In Top News

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City, Missouri, Police Department is investigating a homicide in the area of 20th and Main streets.

Officers were called around 5:45 p.m. Sunday to the area just south on the bridge in response to a cutting call.

An unresponsive man with stab wounds was located on the sidewalk on the west side of Main Street.

He was transported by emergency medical services to an area hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.

A witness alleges the victim and a suspect engaged in an altercation on the bridge before the suspect struck the victim with an unknown object, causing the man to fall to the ground, per KCPD.

When the witness saw the man lying unresponsive, they called police.

Main was closed in both directions for investigators and detectives to process the scene, meaning Kansas City Streetcar service was temporarily suspended
because of the “blockage on the route,” per a RideKC rider alert.

Service resumed by 8:30 p.m.

Anyone with information is asked to contact detectives at 816-234-5043. To remain anonymous, call 816-474-TIPS.

This article has been updated to reflect the incident was a stabbing rather than a shooting.

For jurisdictions that utilize the Greater Kansas City Crime Stoppers Tips Hotline, anonymous tips can be made by calling 816-474-TIPS (8477), submitting the tip online or through the free mobile app at P3Tips.com.
