Lots of misinformation floating around in these comments.
The home and its proximity to a newer apartment complex in the area had NOTHING to do with this shooting. That apartment complex at 7 and Moreland School does contain a percentage of subsidized units. So do nearly all complexes in the Eastern Jackson County area.
School children were NOT allowed to walk through the crime scene once it was secured by police and first responders. At least one bus driver did return a partial load of children to an area school. The school did not have custody of the kids on the bus at the time of the shooting. The transport had custody. The bus company should probably have a police scanner and radio contact with their drivers. But they apparently don't or didn't believe the kids in the busses were at risk. Bus drivers are not trained for a street shooting incident. They are trained to safely drive their bus and avoid cell phone and texting drivers along their routes and to stop at RR crossings.
The shooting victim was NOT a victim. He was an active participant. The "argument" was over a marijuana joint that one man in the car and the victim were tussling over. Two participants, one 21 years of age, and another had firearms. Both fired shots at each other. Doubtful that either weapon was legally carried or discharged in self-defense.
We will see what comes of this entire situation. My prediction.... NOTHING. Thank you Jackson County Courts! You would rather cut a deal between those charged, the prosecutor, and the attornies and avoid presecution and imprisonment.
I completely support the PD and Fire crews that place their lives on the line in this town and others. They are doing their jobs as well as they can. But they perform their duties with the full knowledge that the two shooters in this incident will never be taken off of the street, and their drug supplier won't be shut down.
This is a serious incident involving assault with a firearm for both parties, unlawful use, illegally carrying, drug possession, flight from the scene and so on. The other shooter had to be brought back from KC on the next day while the injured party underwent four hours of surgery for nearly critical wounds! The PD knew his identity within a few hours.
And to the News crews that inaccurately "reported" the news of "two men in the car" and "a resident of the house" and a "gunman" not "GUN MEN". Shame on you all. If the early reporting and a followup report had been printed or aired we would all see just how ridiculous and wasteful our efforts to secure our kids and neighborhoods and schools has become.
Both participants in the shooting ought to be made to pay for the other's own medical and legal expenses and the expense incurred by the City for their arrest, trial, emergency response, and otherwise. It is highly doubtful that either delinquent is a tax payor.
However, our 78 year old BS Prosecutor has a nice deal in his office and the issue won't be pressed much farther. Just cut another deal and collect some cash and run up some glamorous legal fees for the attorney buddies that have helped to keep him in his position for way too many years.
It is time for a change in the way the Law is administered in this city.

I picked my son up at Daniel Young Elem.@ 3:35 and just when we got up on 7 hwy going N. we had to pull over for 7 emergency vehicles going S on 7hwy. I don't know what the bus drivers could have done except taken the children back to school. We love the school and have lived here for 20 years.
As far as the neighborhood I no longer walk alone since my son was "jumped" by a large group of late teen boys just "hanging out" on Shamrock Dr. as he walked our dog. FYI: Blue Springs does NOT post in the paper all the crime.

You can't unless mmm. Your a chicken shit cop yourself!!!

Well, except that I am still receiving "reply notifications" on this subject I wouldn't have found your response.
And, quite frankly judging from mispelling and poor grammar usage in your reply (above) you barely advanced beyond the 11th grade yourself.
The word is "you're" a conjugation of "you" and "are". Not "your".
But.... protocol at the scene for the first responder would have been to secure the scene, administer aid to any in need of help, protect the innocent and rely upon his fellow officers to secure a perimeter and apprehend any "known" suspect.
There is no need to chase a suspect through a neighborhood (carrying, not carrying, high on drugs(?)at school dismissal time when children are walking the streets, and increase the severity of the situation.
The word is "you're" a conjugation of "you" and "are". Not "your".
.... or don't you watch CSI...?
