Suspects sought in string of KCK street robberies

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) – Police in Kansas City, Kan., have recovered a stolen vehicle they believe was used in a carjacking and up to a half-dozen armed street robberies.

The holdups occurred in the northeastern part of the city over a span of roughly three hours, beginning with the carjacking around 5:30 a.m. Thursday.

Other victims reported being confronted while walking down the street by two or three people, at least one with a gun, who took cellphones, wallets and other items.

No injuries were reported, but one man told KCTV he was in his car when three people jumped out of another vehicle and opened fire with a sawed-off shotgun. The man said his car was hit twice by gunfire while he drove away.
