KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Authorities say three people have been killed and another wounded in two separate shootings in Kansas City.

Police say the violence started around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday when a man fatally shot his 64-year-old mother, Nicki Alexopoulos, and wounded a family friend before killing himself. Police say the Kansas City woman and her son were found dead inside a residence. The wounded friend was found outside and rushed to a hospital in critical condition. The son’s name wasn’t immediately released.

Three hours later, officers found another shooting victim, who was identified as 37-year-old Jeremy Eubanks, of Kansas City. Police say witnesses reported seeing a car fleeing after hearing gunfire.
