Mayor Sly James Issues Statement Regarding Tonight’s Shooting on the Plaza

October 15, 2016 - KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI

“Tonight I have mixed emotions. I’m thankful that the victims from tonight’s shootings are not suffering from life-threatening injuries and that no additional bystanders were hurt. However, I’m angry that gun violence continues to shatter lives in all parts of our city, whether it be on the Plaza or at 44th and Montgall, where I grew up. We must send a message to those individuals whose use of guns diminishes the safety of all of our neighborhoods. Let’s bring this person to justice quickly by calling the tips hotline,816-474-TIPS, if you have any information that could help.”
