Home / National News / Kansas City Police Have Highway Shooting Suspect in Custody


(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) —  A man allegedly involved in a series of highway shootings in the Kansas City, Missouri, area since March was arrested Thursday, according to Chief of Police Darryl Forte.

At a press conference, Forte announced, “We wanted to make sure the residents and those that travel through Kansas City know that they’re safe. They’ve been safe the whole time if you’ve paid attention.”

Twelve of 20 shooting incidents were positively linked to the same person. Although three motorists were actually hit by gunfire, none of their wounds were life-threatening.

Meanwhile, there hasn’t been a shooting linked to the suspect on a Kansas City-area highway since April 6.

Forte said no charges have been filed yet but more information would be available at a Friday press conference.

There was a highway shooting in Kansas City, Kan., last Monday that left one man dead and another critically injured. However, local authorities don’t believe it had to do with the shootings connected to Thursday’s arrest.
