ROYALS EMPLOYEE SHOT IN KAUFFMAN STADIUM CAR PARK

A Kansas City Royals parking employee was shot on Friday afternoon by a gunman who later turned the gun on himself. 

Kansas City police have stated they believe the gunman was the boyfriend or a former partner of the employee shot at around 3pm local time outside of the Kauffman Stadium.

The female, believed to be in her 40s, was in a critical condition as being shot in the abdomen and later underwent surgery. The gunman, also in his 40s, died at the scene. 

The parking lot was temporarily closed as stadium workers began to arrive ready for the Royals night game but the game went ahead as scheduled.
