Kansas City shooting kills dad, paralyzes son, 10

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Kansas City police are investigating a shooting that killed a 34-year-old man and left his son paralyzed.

Police say Kavyea Curry was found shot to death Friday night in a car at a gas station. Police spokesman Capt. Tye Grant says Curry’s 10-year-old son was critically wounded in the shooting and paralyzed from the chest down. A second 5-year-old child who was in the car was unwounded.

Grant says the suspected gunman approached Curry’s driver side window on foot and shot several times through the window striking both Curry and his son, who was in the front passenger seat.

Police have released surveillance video showing the suspected gunman walking up to to Curry’s car, and they’re asking anyone with information to call police or the TIPS Hotline, 816-474-TIPS (8477).
