This is the MySpace page of ACE, aka Andre Taylor, Kansas City’s 39th homicide victim this year. He was found shot to death on the front lawn of 8600 Drury Avenue last Friday night. There are no suspects in custody.
Taylor was one half of a hip-hop act called the Supreme Team. According to that MySpace page, the duo counted local names like Tech N9ne and the Popper as crew and had big plans with their music this summer.
One of Taylor’s friends commented, “This killing in our town is becoming old, ridiculous and just plain dumb. I wish we would just think before we act.”
Here comes this summer’s constant refrain: anyone who knows anything about the shooting is encouraged to call the TIPS hotline at 474-TIPS. -- Nadia Pflaum
