A Rare Call

There are some types of calls that the officers of Overland Park respond to regularly and then there are some types of calls that are few and far between. A murder-suicide call is one of the rare kind. In fact, when officers responded to the call of shots fired on January 5, 2012, just after 10:00 am, it was the first call of this nature since September of 2011.

As most know by now, the original call came out as a report of shots fired. The first officers on scene located a female who was shot multiple times. She was transported to a nearby hospital, but later died from her injuries. An investigation ensued.

Officer and detectives learned from witnesses that a maroon truck, driven by a white male, was seen leaving the area. They searched the area for the truck and found it nearby in the 13900 block of Lamar. The male related to the truck was found dead from a gunshot wound.

Detectives continue to work the investigation but have determined it is a domestic situation.
