Friends of a gay man murdered as he walked down a city street say he was murdered in a hate attack. Ta’Ron ‘Rio’ Carson, 24, was fatally shot by an assailant in a black SUV as he left Aura nightclub in Kansas City on Sunday.
The Kansas City Anti-Violence Project speculated that he had been the victim of a hate crime. They said: ‘This act of violence follows a pattern in which LGBTQ+ people of colour are most often directly targeted and suffer the highest number of fatalities.”
