    MO - Kansas City LE seeks federal help in highway shootings, I-435 and I-470

    Police link some of the 13 recent shootings on area highways and roadways

    Kansas City police have developed information that links some of the 13 recent shootings on area highways and roadways, they said Tuesday.

    Investigators won’t say how many they’ve linked or whether they used suspect descriptions, ballistic comparisons or other means to connect them.

    Police discussed several additional similar shootings at a briefing Tuesday morning but don’t have enough information to add those incidents to the possible pattern of 13 identified by police analysts over the weekend, said police spokesman Capt. Tye Grant, who attended the briefing.

    A lot of the problem in that area of Kansas City is so many different LE jurisdictions. KC, Blue Springs, Grandview on the MO side and KC, KS, Leawood, P. Village, Olathe, Overland Park to name a few on the KS side.

    There shouldn't be a problem getting cooperation there. I believe there is an FBI and ATF office in KC. JMO's

    Short story and video pics of the suspect arrested today. Thank you popsicle for the heads up. My head must have been in the sand. I live near there.

    KC area crime has just become unbearable. I have moved from the Metro area because of it, after 13 years. I had become too apathetic to the daily acceptance that LE seems to have about violent crime. JMO's

    Mohammed Whitaker pleads guilty to 2014 Kansas City area highway shootings, will serve 30 years
    BY ANDREW LYNCH AND ROBERT TOWNSEND, UPDATED AT 06:14PM, SEPTEMBER 13, 2016
    http://fox4kc.com/2016/09/13/mohamme...erve-30-years/

    "A Grandview man who police said opened fire on unsuspecting drivers traveling on Kansas City area highways in 2014 has pleaded guilty to 20 felony charges. Mohammed Whitaker, 30, will serve 30 years in prison according to Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker.

    Whitaker had been set to go to trial on September 26 before entering guilty pleas on Tuesday to 10 counts of unlawful discharge of a weapon at a motor vehicle and 10 counts of armed criminal action.

    Police said Whitaker was responsible for at least nine different highway shootings, seven occurring on roadways around the Grandview Triangle between March and April of 2014. At least two victims were wounded... "

    The reports I saw made no mention of motive.
