    Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.

    "It's really sad. And it's super disappointing, especially cause people take advantage of times like this, and days like this, because they think that they can just get away with it," said Morgan Taylor, who was visiting her friend. "There's no point in violence, especially on a day when we're supposed to be celebrating. Kids are out."

    Part of the neighborhood was sealed off to neighbors as a K-9 team was brought in to search for evidence.

    Detectives taped off a black BMW. Investigators said it was a part of the investigation, but they did not say how it was connected.
