Overland Park, Kansas, Elementary School Shooting: Two Workers Shot at Sunrise Point, Live Updates

157th and Roe: Sunrise Point Elementary School where a man shot two people he was working with on Tuesday, July 3, 2018.

Overland Park Fire Department spokesman Jason Rhodes says the home is where authorities found a sport utility vehicle that was carjacked Tuesday after the shooting at Sunrise Point Elementary School.

Overland Park Police are on the scene, responding to a shooting that took place at around 9 a.m.at Sunrise Elementary School, according to a report by local CBS affiliate KCTV.

District spokeswoman Becky Miller said no students were present at the school Tuesday. No students were injured in the shooting.

The shooting suspect fled and tried to carjack someone at a auto wash.


Rhodes said that when police started to move in with armored vehicles, the suspect bolted from the back door of the home and was taken down.

Lacy later told reporters that the suspect is a white male who worked for the same company as the two victims. They believe the suspect was a co-worker of the injured men, and that the shooting came after an argument.

Donchez said the person who surrendered had been "positively identified" as the suspect police had been seeking.

Police Chief Frank Donchez says the home belonged to the owner of the carjacked vehicle. Shortly after the shooting, a gunman attempted to steal a black Denali SUV in the area, but he was unsuccessful.
