KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) – Police in Kansas City have released an improved picture of the suspect’s car in the murder of 4-year-old LeGend Taliferro.

The little boy was shot and killed while he was sleeping in his family’s apartment earlier on June 29.

The new image from officers appears to be of a dark to black-colored sedan.

Police say video footage released earlier in the investigation showed the vehicle pulling out of a parking lot near the location of the shooting before taking off down the road.
