Police are investigating a Friday night shooting on an Amtrak train near Kansas City

Police in Lee’s Summit have identified the 30-year-old Independence man who was shot to death Friday night on an Amtrak train.  

Investigators believe Richie T. Aaron Junior was fatally wounded while the Missouri River Runner train was stopped at the Lee’s Summit depot.  

Passengers who heard the gunshots apparently didn’t realize someone had been hurt.  

The suspect is believed to have left the train before it departed the station.  

Aaron wasn’t found until the train was en route to Independence.  

Medical help was waiting when it arrived, but the victim died before he could be rushed to the hospital.
