Shooting at Overland Park duplex kills woman, wounds girl

July 7, 2015

— A woman was killed and a girl was wounded after someone fired several shots into an Overland Park duplex on the same block where two young men were fatally shot last week.

The Kansas City Star reports police were called just before 6:30 p.m. Monday to an Overland Park residence where a woman in her 30s was fatally wounded. Officers also found an 11-year-old girl with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police say there were nine people inside the duplex at the time of the shooting, including seven children. They say a suspect fled in a gray Pontiac Grand Prix.

Investigators are looking into whether there is a connection between the shooting and one last week that left two people dead.
