KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Wyandotte County authorities say a man’s shooting death at a park might be part of a series of violent crimes. Five people were taken into custody after the shooting death of 30-year-old Skylar Needham at a Wyandotte County park on Aug. 15. Sheriff Don Ash said on Thursday the five are believed to be part of a group that has committed violent crimes in several cities on both sides of the state line. Three of the suspects were released and the other two remain in custody. Needham was found shot to death after his car crashed at the park. Ash said investigators have found no apparent link between Needham and the suspects.
