17-Year-Old Sought In Shooting That Left 1 Dead, 2 Wounded

BLUE SPRINGS, Mo. (AP) — Authorities want to question a 17-year-old in a shooting that left one teen dead and two others wounded in suburban Kansas City.

Blue Springs police have identified Aden Kaler, of Blue Springs, as a person of interest in the death of 17-year-old Jayden Lockett.  Police say Kaler should be considered armed and dangerous.

Police found Lockett dead on Nov. 11 when they responded to a report of shots being fired at a Blue Springs home. Officers also found a 19-year-old with minor injuries and a 15-year-old with critical injuries.

Blue Springs police Sgt. Joe Fanara said at the time that police were investigating what led to the gunfire but were working with a theory that a gun battle between two shooters had occurred.
