A teenager who was found dead on an apartment front porch in North Kansas City was considered a person of interest in a separate killing. 

Zachary Murphy, 19, of Gladstone was found dead early Monday after someone reported shots fired in the 2300 block of Oliver Drive. 

The Kansas City Star reports Detectives wanted to talk with Murphy about the September 2016 killing of Logan Minton, 22, of Riverside. Police believe Minton had been abducted before he was shot to death. His body was found near Armour Road and Knox Street in North Kansas City.

Detectives said Murphy had refused to cooperate in the investigation.
