Officers also arrested a 39-year-old, Merriam man just before 6 p.m. Friday.

As of Friday morning, police said one of the victims remained in critical condition. The second victim was treated and released from an area hospital.

Original report:


Overland Park Police are investigating after two men were injured in an early-morning stabbing.

An employee of Mac's Sports Pub, 9617 West 87th Street, called police just before 2 a.m. to report a fight in the parking lot. The employee reported that one of the people involved was possibly armed with a knife.

Radio traffic indicated that officers encountered a "large" and "agitated crowd" in the parking lot.

The second victim, only identified as a man in his mid-20's, was transported with a wrist laceration. His injuries were described as non-life threatening.

Multiple radio broadcasts describe the suspect as a white male in his mid-50's. He was last seen wearing a gray shirt and blue jeans. Witnesses told officers that he was last seen running north from the parking lot. Officers know the suspect's name, which Operation 100 News is not releasing at this time.

Lenexa Police are investigating after a man died from a gunshot wound early Thursday morning.

The incident occurred on the south side of 87th Street Parkway and Long Street, just across the street from Lenexa Police Department headquarters.

A black 2013 Ford Focus with Missouri license plates was stopped just south of the intersection with the driver's door open.

A yellow tarp was draped over the car's interior.

Operation 100 News video - Not for broadcast

At 1:19 a.m. an officer called out "shots fired" over the radio.

Master Police Officer Dan Friesen says, "a two-officer unit on patrol saw a black Ford Focus sitting in the middle of the road on Long Street, just south of 87th Street Parkway. When officers pulled up behind the vehicle they heard a single gunshot."

Johnson County Med-Act responded to the scene and pronounced the man dead at the scene.

Police have identified the him as a 31-year-old from Kansas City, Missouri. Police have released his name, however Operation 100 News is choosing not to release it.

Friesen says, "there were no shots fired by officers and they had not contacted the man previously."

MPO Friesen has confirmed to Operation 100 News that prior to officers arriving, the Ford Focus had collided with a median at 87th Street Parkway and Rosehill Road. The vehicle ran over a median sign and left behind several large pieces of bumper and a fender well.

Police had the eastbound lanes of 87th Street Parkway closed at Rosehill Road for about 90 minutes.

Operation 100 News was at this scene for approximately an hour this morning, attempting to speak with officers at the scene and was told that no one was available to share any information.

Friesen says "typically officers on scene do not release information to media in order to avoid conflicting information being given or providing information that could compromise an investigation."

Had Operation 100 News simply been informed that this was a suspected suicide, there would not have been any reason to proceed with a report.

Operation 100 News does not typically report suicides, however as this one occurred just across the street from the Lenexa Police headquarters, in front of officers, and along busy 87th Street Parkway it is being reported.

Holiday weekend fireworks enforcement

Posted: July 7, 2015 - 4:12pm

With fireworks being illegal in most of Johnson County, Operation 100 News reached out to several agencies after the July 4th weekend to see how many complaints were received.

Major Dan Tennis with the Shawnee Police Department says they received 68 fireworks complaints. Officers issued five citations and "about half a barrel" of fireworks were confiscated. Tennis says the barrel is estimated to be a 20-30 gallon container.

Shawnee has recently been researching legalization of some fireworks. Here's a report regarding that debate from my reporting partners at the Shawnee Dispatch.

Officer Gary Mason with the Overland Park Police Department says they received 130 calls for service regarding fireworks. Officers issued 31 citations and 26 of the citations also included fireworks being confiscated.

Deputy Claire Young with the Johnson County Sheriff's Office says they received approximately 238 fireworks calls between Friday evening and Sunday evening. Deputy Young says she does not have a number of citations issued or confiscations. The Sheriff's Office handles call taking and dispatching for a large part of Johnson County. Agencies dispatched by the Sheriff's Office include the cities of De Soto, Edgerton, Fairway, Gardner, Lake Quivira, Merriam, Olathe, Mission, Roeland Park, Spring Hill, Westwood, as well as Johnson County Park Police and Johnson County Sheriff's Office in unincorporated areas of the county.

Lawrence, Lenexa, and Olathe police have not responded to the request for information.

None of the responding agencies reported any injuries related to the use of fireworks.
