  • Kansas City police are looking for a man who shot and killed a Blue Springs couple as their two young children sat in a nearby vehicle.
    The victims were Qwentelia Vanzant and Jaron Syrus, both 25.
    Kansas City police said the couple stopped at a convenience store at Blue Parkway and Hardesty about 9 p.m. Monday and encountered some people with whom they had an ongoing dispute.
    Police were called to what was described as a large disturbance in the parking lot. By the time officers arrived, a man had shot the couple and driven off. Both victims were taken to a hospital, where they were pronounced dead.
    The Kansas City Star reports the victims' 3-year-old son and Vanzant's 7-year-old daughter were inside their vehicle during the shooting. They were released to a relative after the shooting.
    Homicide detectives are investigating and encourage anyone with information to call the TIPS Hotline.
