Man shot, killed near Police headquarters


KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) — A man was found dead early Monday morning by police headquarters.

The victim has been identified as 28-year-old Deangelo Wallace.

Police say a passerby called them about 12:30 a.m. They say a person reported seeing a man shot and unresponsive at the corner of 12th and Locust streets.

KCPD headquarters is at 11th and Locust streets. A homicide scene in that area is something KCPD says is rare.

“I can’t immediately recall a homicide here on the corner.  It’s unfortunate everywhere here in the city, it’s a little bit surprising in front of a police station,” said Sgt. Jake Becchina, a spokesman with the Kansas City Police Department.

Wallace was pronounced dead at the scene. Police say the early investigation shows Wallace was involved in a disagreement with the suspect. That’s when they say the suspect shot Wallace and then left the scene.

Police say they’re still looking for witnesses, and there is no suspect information as of now. If anyone saw has any additional information they are asked to contact detectives directly at 234-5043 or the TIPS Hotline anonymously at 474-TIPS.  There is a reward of up to $25,000 for information leading to arrest in this case.
