Victim identified in 3300 block of Jackson homicide

At about 8 p.m. July 21, police were called to a residence in the 3300 block of Jackson. Upon arrival, officers located a man lying in the front yard suffering from an apparent gun shot wound.
The victim has been positively identified as 29-year-old Marcus Yarbrough, a black male of Kansas City, MO.

Witnesses said the victim and an elderly man were inside the residence involved in an argument prior to the shooting. Yarbrough and the elderly man (who is in his 80's) lived together in the home, but are not related. Apparently the two were arguing, and witnesses were unable to diffuse the situation that led to the shooting.
