Persons of interest in last night’s homicide


On 11/12/14 at 9:52 pm, the Independence Police were called to 9040 E. 40 Highway in reference to a shooting in the parking lot of the Shell station.  Officers found a white male deceased in the lot and learned from witnesses that the white male suspect fled on foot.  An extensive area check was conducted and some evidence was recovered, but the suspect remains at-large.  Video surveillance from the Shell station captured the images of two persons of interest and their truck.  The white male was the passenger in the truck when it arrived at the store and the female was driving.  The truck appears to be a late 90’s-early 00’s extended cab Chevy Z71, either black or dark blue likely bearing Missouri plates.
