Police Release Video of Car Wanted in Homicide Investigation
Raytown, MO – Raytown Police have identified the victim of yesterday’s shooting as 31 year old Danny L. Dean of Kansas City, Kansas. Dean was shot in a parking lot at the corner of 66th Terr. and Raytown Rd. Thursday evening (09/10/2015) just before 6:00 p.m. A plain clothed policeman heard the shots from across the street where there was also an ambulance crew. Officers and paramedics were on the scene almost immediately and Dean was very quickly removed to an area hospital, but was pronounced dead.
Police believe that there were groups of people that met in the parking lot that evening for what investigators believe was some sort of criminal enterprise. After some talking and visits back and forth between the various cars, the business ended abruptly with Dean being shot by someone from one of the other cars. Police have the car in which Dean arrived and have identified those that arrived in it. Another car was seen leaving the scene of the incident and was captured in this bit of surveillance video:
Police are asking for anyone that can provide any information about this car, the events in that parking lot yesterday or any other crime to call the TIPS hotline at (816) 474-TIPS (8477).
