Vehicle tied to drive-by death of KCK girl found

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Kansas City, Kansas, police say officers have recovered a vehicle that they think was involved in a drive-by shooting that killed a 10-year-old girl.

Maj. Vince Davenport says police are “making progress” investigating last month’s killing of Machole J. Stewart. The KansasCity Star reported that detectives investigating Machole’s death are being aided by agents from the FBI and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Davenport says the outside agencies are providing “technical services.”

Machole was inside her family’s home when the occupants of a passing vehicle fired shots into the dwelling.

Her death came a little more than a week after a 6-year-old Angel Marie Hooper was shot to death at a convenience store in Kansas City, Missouri. Two men have been charged in Angel’s killing.
