Police investigate Facebook post in search for toddler's killer

Posted: Updated:
Detectives are investigating a Facebook post where some fear a young man bragged about a drive-by shooting that took a toddler's life.

The man posted on Facebook, "We (expletive) 67th up LOL." Dozens of KCTV5 viewers emailed or sent via Facebook screenshots of the post.

KCTV5 encouraged the posters to contact police or the TIPS Hotline, and several said that they had.

"We have been made aware of the information you are referencing, and as with all tips it will be considered," according to an email from Sgt. Kari Thompson of the Kansas City Police Department. "We encourage your continued efforts in directing your viewers to the TIPS Hotline."

Amorian Hale, 3, was sleeping in his bed when he was fatally shot about 10 a.m. Sunday. At least 20 bullets were fired into his home. His father, Chris Hale, has repeatedly urged for someone to come forward with information leading to an arrest, saying he is desperate for justice.

"I don't think it's random, but I don't think I was a target," he said. "My son didn't get a chance to start school. He's really smart. He loved his little sister. He was the best big brother I know."

The post on Facebook was made by someone using the screen name OneTwoBeeGassin. That person has a photo on his timeline of young men pointing guns into the camera. The original post about 67th Street has since been deleted from OneTwoBeeGassin's timeline.
