Kansas City, Kansas, police on Monday announced a homicide investigation into a case of a man fatally shot during a suspected burglary and home intrusion in early January.
The shooting occurred Jan. 22 in the 10900 block of Hubbard Road, said Nancy Chartrand, a spokeswoman for the KCKPD. Police officers were initially sent there by a homeowner who reported a home invasion in progress.
During the 911 call, the homeowner reported to police that another resident had shot one of the suspected intruders.
Responding police officers found 32-year-old Deven Monaghan, from the KCK, seriously injured by gunfire. He was taken by ambulance to an area hospital and died there two days later, Chartrand said.
The Major Case Unit was investigating. Anyone with information was asked to anonymously contact the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS.
The homicide investigation announced Monday by the KCKPD is one of two in the city since early 2023, according to data maintained by The Star. On the afternoon of January 27, police officers found a gunshot victim, described as a female, dead inside a vehicle in the 6100 block of Haskell Avenue after being called there in response to a shooting.
