Officer-Involved Shooting In Overland Park Leaves A Man Dead
On Saturday, a shooting incident involving a cop left an individual dead.
The individual died due to a gunshot wound after police arrived in the 9300 block of West 149th Terrace to see an individual who was reportedly trying to harm themselves, according to Keith Jenkins.
The victim was taking his car out of the garage when he sustained the gunshot wound. According to a cop, “As the responding officers approached the residence to make contact, the garage door opened and a vehicle exited the garage, moving rapidly toward one of the responding officers. The officer discharged his service weapon striking the male driver. The driver died at the scene.”
The name of the individual who died in the incident was not revealed.
Only one cop shot while there were many present on the scene. The cop will be put on administrative leave for shooting.
Jenkins added, “The officer is fine. Very shook up, as you can imagine. Anytime this happens, officers are very upset that it had to happen.”
Johnson County Officer-Involved Shooting Team is investigating the case and it will be reviewed by the Johnson County District Attorney’s Office after the investigation is completed.
