In Wake Of Angel Hooper Shooting, The Community's Role In Decreasing Violence
As Kansas City prepared for the spotlight of the World Series, a little girl stepped out of a local convenience store. A car drove by, someone fired shots, and in seconds, six-year old Angel Hooper was dead. In the days since her murder, the Kansas City Police Department has received only two tips in its investigation.
On Wednesday's Up to Date, we talk about Angel's case, look at the story of one little boy who survived after being shot in April and see how his grandfather is taking a stand. We also look at the responsibility of the community in stopping violence and what keeps residents from assisting police in cases like these.
