Shooting in Raytown Sends One Man to the Hospital

Raytown Police were called to the 6600 block of Hardy a little past midnight on Saturday (05-12-12) after neighbors reported hearing the sound of gunfire. When police arrived, they saw people run inside a residence and a Dodge Stratus hurriedly leaving the area. Police attempted to stop the Dodge which fled from police and a car chase ensued. During the chase, an unknown young black man, about 6’00” tall, wearing a white shirt and black shorts jumped out of the vehicle and ran from police in the 6600 block of Maywood. When the Dodge finally stopped in the 9800 block of 63rd Street, another young black man wearing a red shirt ran from the vehicle. Police then discovered that a 20 year old man in the vehicle had been shot. The man was taken to a local hospital where he is being treated for serious injuries. Two people were taken into custody for questioning and later released as the investigation is ongoing.

Police continue to look for the two men that ran from the Dodge and ask that anyone with information about this incident, or any other crime, call the Crime Stoppers hotline at (816) 474-TIPS (474-8477).
