A spokesman for the Missouri Transportation Deptment said the signs will be removed immediately if the department wins an appeal set for eary January, 2000. The sign was re-erected by The Missouri Highway Department on December 1.

The man is allegedly behind 12 shootings that left three injured, which began on March 8 and appeared to have stopped on April 6. “We want to make sure the residents and those who travel through Kansas City know that they are safe,” said Kansas City Police Chief Darryl Forté.
