Public’s help sought in case of baby’s fatal shooting

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Civic leaders are asking for anyone with information in the fatal drive-by shooting of a 7-month-old boy in Kansas City, Kansas, to come forward.

The Kansas City Star reports police have received only one tip, but it was information that investigators say didn’t advance the case.

The police chief says detectives investigating the death of JaQuail Mansaw are hampered by a lack of information.

The boy died on Monday from his injuries after police say a shooter drove by the residence and fired several shots late Sunday into the home. A motive hasn’t been released in the shooting.

Unified Government Commissioner Gayle Townsend held a news conference Thursday asking for the public’s help in discovering who killed JaQuail.

The boy’s parents held a candlelight vigil on Thursday to honor his memory.
