Kansas City police are investigating the death of a woman who was shot and killed Wednesday during an apparent rush hour road rage incident.

Authorities say the woman was driving in midtown when a maroon SUV pulled up beside her and opened fire.

The killings brought to seven the number of homicides in Kansas City since Monday.


Two men were fatally shot at a recording studio in the southern part of the city around 12:30 p.m. Wednesday. Witnesses reported an armed man ran from the scene.

On Tuesday, the owner of a barber shop was found shot to death inside his store. And two men were found shot to death Monday night in a vehicle.

Also Monday night, police were called to home where they found a man on a porch with severe head injuries. That man later died. A 33-year-old suspect was charged Wednesday with second-degree murder.

Witnesses said the pair had been drinking when the suspect hit the victim with a handgun.
