Crime Busted: KCPD launches web page to help identify felony crime suspects
1 Killed, 1 Wounded After Shots Fired During Boyle Heights Bar Fight
According to police, two suspects were arguing with people in the bar, and after the argument spilled out onto the sidewalk, one of the suspects pulled out a gun and shot the two victims. One of the victims died at a hospital. The second is in stable condition. The two suspects are at large. Investigators are scouring surveillance video for clues as to where the two suspects may have gone and for a possible motive. The shooting was not believed to be gang related.
One of the fastest ways to help identify the suspect of a crime is to put their photo online – and the Kansas City, Missouri, Police Department has decided to do just that with a new initiative.
The department is launching Busted, a program with a webpage showing photos of suspects caught on camera committing felony crimes.
Police said the crimes cover everything from burglaries up to shootings.

The suspect is facing charges in attacks from May 1997 and September 1997. In May 1997, a woman was walking to a Union City public transit station after work when a man dragged her to a secluded area, cut her clothes off with a knife and sexually assaulted her, according to prosecutors and court documents. The suspect’s DNA was found on the victim's clothes, prosecutors said.
In the past, the photos and videos were only circulated internally within the Police Department. Officials said they’re now sharing them with the public to get as many eyes as possible.
You can follow along on the program’s website,.
Because all of the cases are felony level, each tip leading to an arrest or conviction could lead to a cash reward through the CrimeStoppers TIPS Hotline. Each case featured on Busted links to the online TIPS Hotline anonymous submission form.
Each case on the Busted page will remain there for 30 days.
