JCC Shootings: How The Community Is Responding

Laura Ziegler

Communities in the Kansas City metropolitan area are in shocked mourning after multiple shootings left three people dead Sunday afternoon.

On Monday's Up to Date, we talk with a local man who was at the Jewish Community Center when two people were shot about what it was like to be in the lockdown there. We also check in with KCUR's Laura Ziegler to get the latest on the alleged shooter and talk with a local pastor about how the community is responding to the deaths.


  • Jeff Nessel, a Leawood resident who was at the JCC when the shooting occurred
  • Laura Ziegler, KCUR reporter
  • Rev. Adam Hamilton of the Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, whose church lost two members in the shootings
  • Marvin Szneler, executive director of the Jewish Community Relations Bureau/American Jewish Committee
When I host Up To Date each morning at 9, my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers.
