New gunshot-detection technology was released Monday that could help Kansas City police pinpoint the location of gunfire.
Police are tight lipped about where they are using the ShotSpotter Flex gunshot detection system that tracks the address, the number of shots fired and the number of weapons used.
Police don’t want criminals to discover the locations that are being monitored. However, the system covers about 3.5 square miles in the urban core and includes the Troost MAS bus line and the Green Impact Zone.
Just look up. They’re probably on phone poles, traffic lights and anyone who volunteered their rooftop.
If someone shoots, they usually run or drive off. I don’t see how this is going to be helpful since it’s not equipped with a freeze ray or a net that will drop out of the sky.
Who shot the shot? Who got shot tonight?
