Man killed Saturday morning identified

At 5:13 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 9, officers were called to an area hospital to investigate a shooting. They found the victim and other belligerent and uncooperative people in the emergency room. The victim died from his wounds shortly after arriving. He has been identified as 21-year-old Randy L. Wilson, of Kansas City, Mo. The victim had apparently been shot in a vehicle, which had then been driven to the hospital.

The occupants of the car were questioned and said that they were driving through the intersection of Linwood and Gillham when the victim was shot from outside of the vehicle. The driver believed that an oncoming car had fired the shots.
