KANSAS CITY, Kan. - Authorities searched Tuesday for a suspect after five people were killed in Kansas and Missouri.
Authorities in Missouri searched for suspect Pablo Antonio Serrano-Vitorino, 40, near where his truck was found, of ficials said. He may be armed with an AK-47, according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
Kansas City police responded to a shooting at 11 p.m. Monday in the southwestern part of the city. When they arrived, officers found three men in their early 30s apparently shot to death, according to police.
A fourth man was taken to a local hospital, where he later died from apparent gunshot wounds, police said.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol found the pickup of suspect abandoned on a highway in Montgomery County, Mo., about 170 miles east of Kansas City at about 7:30 a.m. Tuesday, officials said.
A fifth victim, a 49-year-old man, was killed in New Florence, Missouri, near where Serrano-Vitorino's truck was found. Serrano-Vitorino is also a suspect in this killing, Missouri State Highway Patrol Captain John Hotz said.
The victims were not immediately identified, pending identification and family notification.
