  • A 17-year-old boy became Parkville's first homicide victim in about 15 years.

A homicide overnight in usually quiet Parkville shows that nowhere in the metro is immune from violence. A 17-year-old boy was gunned down in a drive-by shooting near Missouri 45 and Missouri 9 around 1 a.m., the Star reports. One shot was allegedly fired from the rear of a Ford Contour and hit the driver of a Ford Thunderbird.



KMBC Channel 9 is reporting that a suspect is in custody, but the Star says they're still looking for the alleged gunman. 

The teen's name has not been released.

KCTV 5 is reporting that the last homicide in Parkville was about 15 years ago.

Police have reportedly said that the victim and suspects knew each other and the shooting wasn't random, if that makes you feel any safer.
