Independence Police took one person at the scene into custody and continue to investigate following a shooting death late Monday in western Independence.
Officers responded just before 11 p.m. Monday to an aggravated assault call at a house in the 1600 block of West Sheley Road, between Norwood Avenue and West Scott Place, and found a woman, 28-year-old Shaunte P. McIntosh, dead from an apparent gunshot wound.
One person also inside the house was taken into custody, though police are not officially calling that person a suspect. Police found at least one gun at the scene.
McIntosh's death marks the first homicide this year in Independence.
