Officers were dispatched to the area of 49th Terrace and Nieman Road just after 2:30 a.m. on a report of possible gunshots heard in the area. According to radio traffic, the initial caller reported hearing what they believed to be five gunshots.

While checking the area officers contacted a man and woman in the 10900 block of West 49th Street.

A neighbor contacted Operation 100 News to report a duplex in that same area was hit by gunfire.

At the scene, Sergeant Matt Seichepine confirmed to Operation 100 News that officers are investigating "shots fired into an occupied dwelling."

Sgt. Seichepine said no one was injured and there is no suspect information to be released.


A man, woman, and two young children could be seen outside of the duplex as police examined bullet holes in the siding.

While on scene around 4:30 a.m., Operation 100 News and Shawnee Police heard a single gunshot to the north of the scene. The sound was followed by a siren in the same area. Sgt. Seichepine said the siren was not Shawnee Police and was possibly Kansas City, Kansas Police.

Update:

Shawnee Police have determined the, 21-year-old, Olathe woman who was injured in a February 16 crash at 63rd Street and Pflumm Road was driving nearly 80 m.p.h. when she lost control and crashed. The posted speed limit on that stretch of Pflumm Road is only 30 m.p.h.The police department's accident narrative says, "Vehicle 1 was determined to be going 78 m.p.h.," in the left lane of southbound Pflumm, when the car struck the center median at 62nd Terrace and began sliding sideways. 

"Vehicle 1 continued sliding southbound in the inside [left] lane of travel and then into the outside [right] lane of travel," the report says. "Vehicle 1 then left the roadway at 63rd Street and Pflumm, where Vehicle 1 first struck a fire hydrant, then a city light pole, and a wooden utility pole."

The impact with the fire hydrant is believed to be when the 2002 Chevrolet Malibu rolled over, trapping the driver inside.

Shawnee firefighters worked for more than an hour to extricate the injured woman from the overturned car.

Johnson County 
Med-Act Public Information Officer Angela Fera confirms the woman was transported to Overland Park Regional Medical Center in critical condition.

The police department's accident report shows that a preliminary impairment test determined the driver's blood alcohol content to be 0.11. The legal limit in Kansas is 0.08.

Major Dan Tennis of the Shawnee Police Department says the woman has been released from the hospital, but he was not able to say when.

"The driver was issued citations through Shawnee Municipal Court, for DUI, Speeding, and Reckless driving," Tennis said. "The driver should be presumed innocent until proven guilty in court."

The accident report also states that the roads were dry when the crash occurred. It started raining shortly after the emergency crews arrived at the scene.

Operation 100 News has chosen to withhold the woman's name until after she appears in court.

Captain Hein also said that he was told the temporary license plate on the suspect vehicle was stolen, but the vehicle was not stolen.

Crime Scene Technicians from the Johnson County Sheriff's Office Crime Lab processed at least three scenes in Shawnee. Traffic cones marked evidence on the ramp from Maurer Road to eastbound Shawnee Mission Parkway, where Captain Hein says the first shots were fired.

Another traffic cone marked evidence on Lackman Road near 74th Street, just outside of the Maple Ridge of Wedgewood neighborhood.

Crime Scene Technicians also collected the suspect vehicle and Lenexa's undercover vehicle. Both vehicles were towed away from the scene for further processing at the Johnson County Crime Lab in Olathe.

Captain Mendoza says, "at around 2:00am the Lenexa Police Department served a search warrant at the original address. No other suspects were found."

Lenexa Police have not released any additional information regarding the nature of their investigation.

No one was injured during the incident.
