Kansas City police continue to investigate 14 highway shootings

KANSAS CITY, Kansas  – There have been 13 shootings along Kansas City area highways in recent weeks, and police now say several of them are connected.

They’re now investigating a 14th shooting after a Johnson County woman said someone shot her car on 71 Highway last Friday.

Right now, there’s one thing Jennie Baugher doesn’t want to do.

“I don’t really want to drive on the highway,” she says.

After picking up her daughter’s friend last Friday, they headed south on 71 Highway near 75th street.

“I heard a big noise that sounded like a rock hit my car and didn’t give it much though until the next day when my husband noticed the hole in the car,” Baugher said.

The hole was located near the gas tank on the back passengers side. Inside of the hole was a bullet.
