(ST. JOSEPH, Mo) Those who live in the area of 25th and Duncan have reacted to the news of Wednesday night's shooting, in which an 18 year-old male was killed. Many of them have shared about what they saw and heard on social media. Neighbors say that more than 20 gunshots were heard in the area at the time, and one person shared pictures of what appear to be bullet holes that passed through his house. KQ2 spoke with one neighbor who told us she was shocked to hear the news. 

"I was really suprised, we were awake and we didn't hear anything, and I was just really shocked when I heard about it this morning." said Tonya Daring, who lives just down the street from where the shooting happened. When asked about the neighborhood, Daring decribed it as "very quiet" and called the shooting "Out of character" for the neighborhood. 

A 20 year-old male suffered non life-threatning injuries in the shooting. Anyone with information is asked to call the tips hotline at (816) 238-TIPS (8477).

The warmer air has moved back into northwest Missouri and northeast Kansas bringing the heat and humidity back to the area. Cloud cover will stick around through mid to late morning Sunday. This will help to keep temperatures a little cooler than what we would see otherwise. Sunday will still get into the low 90s with a Heat Index around 100.
