GRANDVIEW - Grandview police are investigating whether or not a drive-by shooting in the area of Stassen Park and West Fifth Street yesterday morning (Sunday) resulted in injury.
Police raced to the scene at 3 a.m. after witnesses reported hearing shots fired and ultimately found the correct location, which was a home in the 400 block of Avenue E.
While investigating the scene, police fielded a call that a gunshot victim was seeking treatment and claimed to be shot in Grandview.
Grandview Assistant Police Chief Mark Ware said the vehicle used to transport the victim to the hospital matched the description of a vehicle leaving the scene of the shooting.
Police have impounded the car and will obtain a search warrant today to see if the two incidents are related.
This past Friday morning, a flat screen television and a gaming system were reported stolen from the 600 block of Nicka Road after a homeowner found the front door kicked in.
Saturday, police were called to Safeway to investigate a shoplifting incident in which store employees say $60 in goods were stolen. Police have a 21-year-old male in custody who they say will face theft charges.
