KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Police in Kansas City, Kan., have recovered a stolen vehicle they believe was used in a carjacking and up to a half-dozen armed street robberies.

The holdups occurred in the northeastern part of the city over a span of roughly three hours, beginning with the carjacking around 5:30 a.m. Thursday.

Other victims reported being confronted while walking down the street by two or three people, at least one with a gun, who took cellphones, wallets and other items.

No injuries were reported, but one man told KCTV (http://bit.ly/13ockLZ ) he was in his car when three people jumped out of another vehicle and opened fire with a sawed-off shotgun. The man said his car was hit twice by gunfire while he drove away.
