Authorities say a woman who was wounded in a double shooting at a Kansas City, Kansas, deli was initially reported as dead but is alive.

The Kansas City Star reports that the shooting Wednesday at the Edwards Original Corner Market & Deli left one man dead. Police initially said the woman also had died but said Thursday she is in very critical condition and unresponsive.

Police arrested a suspect after a standoff at the deli and took him to a hospital with a gunshot wound.

A brother told The Star that the deceased man was market owner Dennis Edwards. Ellis Nave identified his niece, Lachelle Day, as the second shooting victim and said she had been dating the suspect.

It's unclear why police initially reported that the woman had died.


Two people have been shot to death in a local market and deli in Kansas City, Kansas, and police have arrested the suspect after he barricaded himself inside for two hours.

A brother told The Kansas City Star that one victim of Wednesday afternoon's shooting was business owner Dennis Edwards.

Police said when they responded to reports of gunshots and tried to enter the Edwards Original Corner Market & Deli, the suspect pointed a gun at officers. The officers fired, exited, and a standoff resulted as police negotiated with the suspect.

The suspect was later taken to a hospital with a gunshot wound.

Lisa Green, who worked for Edwards, said two other women were inside and one was shot. Green said she was inside and took cover under a table.
