    A dead woman found inside a car abandoned on an Independence street was being investigated as a likely tie to a shooting reported at a Kansas City motel.
    Kansas City police were called about 10 p.m. Thursday to a motel in the 8200 block of Northwest Prairie View Road in the northland on a reported shooting, according to Kansas City Police spokesman Tye Grant.
    Officers found no victim, but then police received information that someone had driven a shooting victim to North Kansas City Hospital. But according to Grant, that vehicle left without dropping off the shooting victim.
    Around 4 a.m., the vehicle was found near 35th Street and Jackson Drive in Independence, not far from Centerpoint Medical Center.
    A woman was found dead inside the vehicle. Independence police notified Kansas City police, which investigated on Friday. Grant said it is not yet determined if the case is a homicide.
