KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ Two women were killed and another was wounded Friday by shots that were randomly fired into their cars from another vehicle, police said.

Kansas City police said two of the women were struck while sitting in the front seat of one car. Soon after, a woman riding in another car on the same road was shot and killed.

Witnesses said the shots all came from a small red car, which matches the description of a vehicle that was carjacked earlier Friday. Police are investigating whether the same car was also involved in shots fired at a home. No one was injured.

Shortly after the shootings, police found a red Ford Escort smashed into two parked cars. Witnesses said they heard a gunshot shortly before the wreck and saw the driver flee on foot.
