14-year-old boy dies after being shot in NE KCK

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- A 14-year-old boy has been shot and killed after an argument in northeast Kansas City, Kan.

Police identified the victim Sunday as Miguel Garcia of Kansas City, Kan. The Kansas City Stars (http://bit.ly/YM27Ym ) reports that the victim and another teenage boy were walking together Saturday afternoon when a sport utility vehicle approached them.

An argument between the two groups ensued. The SUV then circled the block before its occupants opened fire, striking Miguel. He was rushed to a hospital, where he later died.

A 15-year-old boy who was walking with the victim wasn't injured.

The case is under investigation. Authorities are seeking tips about the identity of the shooters or the location of the SUV.
