Kansas City police say three adults have been shot to death and two others critically wounded in a residential neighborhood in the southern part of the city.
The shootings occurred shortly before 1 p.m. Tuesday. Officers found one person dead and two wounded at a home, then discovered two others dead at a nearby residence.
No one was in custody three hours later. Police Sgt. Kari Thompson would not describe the victims or the suspected shooter. She also would not comment on whether the deaths were being investigated as a homicide-suicide.
Police went door-to-door talking to neighbors but said there was no indication of danger to the public.
Officers are looking for a beige 2002 Toyota Highlander, with Missouri license plate KC5-A4X, that was missing from one of the homes.
