Today, a 
grand jury of Jackson County residents indicted a KCPD detective who was involved in the shooting death of Cameron Lamb on Dec. 3, 2019, in the 4100 block of College.

As the case makes its way through court, we will continue to respect the processand therefore cannot comment further at this time

As with any officer involved shooting incident, we will internally review the actions taken by officers.
