Officers were called to the hospital after the report of an “active shooter”, according to Sgt. Phil DiMartion, spokesman for the Kansas City Police Department, in a written statement. Police stated the injuries sustained were not life-threatening. At approximately 9:25 a.m. police reporter there was no active threat.

Hi there! My name is Ava and this is my second year in SPUB. I’m the proud website manager of Stampede News! I’m beyond excited to help the website run this year and to interact more with our readers! Journalism is so important because it’s how we as people connect with each other; stories bring people together through events and common interests. When I’m not stressing at school you can find me at Cookie Co, where I work, or spending way too much money at Target.
