Man shot early Sunday morning dies

A man shot at 12:33 a.m. Sunday in the 5800 block of Olive has died. He has been identified as 21-year-old Emmanuel Menifield of Kansas City, Mo.

Officers were called to investigate a shooting early Sunday and found five victims outside a home in the 5800 block of Olive. Menifield was one of two victims (males in their 20s) who had life-threatening injuries and were transported to an area hospital for treatment. A 13-year-old boy was transported to an area hospital for treatment of a non-life threatening gunshot injury. The other two victims (a male and female in their 20's) refused treatment at the scene for minor gun shot wounds.
Officers were told a car drove by as the victims were standing around a car parked in the street and fired numerous gunshots at them. The car sped away after the shooting. A vehicle description is not being released at this time.

No suspects are in custody, and detectives ask anyone with information to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS (8477).
