A 60-year-old man out for his morning jog in a quiet suburb of Kansas City was gunned down in a drive-by shooting that appears to be a purely random murder.
It has been one week since someone in a passing car fired a single shot that struck Harry Stone. The car never slowed down and the driver continued speeding along, leaving Mr Stone to die on the side of the road in Raytown, Missouri.
A law enforcement task force convened in the wake of the shooting suggested the killing could be some kind of gang initiation.
However, police in the city of 29,000 people have ruled out that possibility.

Horror as jogger, 60, is gunned down in broad daylight by drive-by shooter who targeted him at random
There has been a rash of Black on White random violence, Is this the case here? I do not know, hope not but it could be another case:http://homicide.kansascity.com/victims/58/
There are those who want a racial war and I think they are doing there best to get one started.
Past time for an open season, no limit on gangs.
Must have done it for Trayvon!
I guess that if you are going out jogging, you need to bring along a tail gunner.
This “city of 29,000” is really an old original suburb of Kansas City, population 2M in the metro area
Chocolate on vanilla, I presume...therefore no mention of races involved.
To join some gangs, you gotta cap somebody.
A city of 29K is too big for me. I never want to live in a town of more than 10K if I can help it.
I now live in small town 7K and that is almost too big for my comfort. I am just out side of the Cleveland, OH metro area and although there are a lot of conveniences of living in a metro area, I will gladly give them up when I retire to get away from traffic and the drama of these concentrated busybodies.
“....who targeted him at random....”
If they do not know who the shooter is how do they know that it was done in a random fashion?
rash? it’s been going on for decades ... the press just does everything it can to hide it
Funding gangs willing to carry out shootings that result in a race war could be a part of the stimulus plan. I think this is the sort of thing that Al Sharpton, Eric Holder and Paul Krugman came up with.
Escalation of the “Knockout Game”?
According to one local source, the victim said he was shot by a black before he died. This seems a case of jogging while white.
But .. but ... Hollywood told us that this is a “really cool gang initiation”.
Probably not random. The poor guy met the profile...harmless, unarmed, white. This reminds me of the Zebra killings in SF, and I bet it’s not going to be the last of them unless the police in KC get busy right now.
