Olathe Police are seeking the public's help after a 17-year-old was shot Sunday night, as first reported, right here, by Operation 100 News.

Police say they were called to the address in the 200 block of N Walnut Street at 10:41 p.m., Sunday, April 15, 2012.

A statement released by Police on Monday morning says, officers found a 17-year-old black male victim suffering from a single gunshot wound to the abdomen. The victim remains hospitalized and in serious condition with non-life threatening injuries.

Tuesday, Police now say they are seeking a red, 2009 Volkswagen Beetle with Wyandotte County, Kansas license plates. The vehicle is also said to possibly have a softball sized dent with chipped paint, on the right rear fender and an unknown sticker in the rear window. Police are not saying that the vehicle is directly connected to the shooting. A similar vehicle was seen in the area, involved in suspicious activity just before the shooting occurred.

The suspect is described as a clean shaven black male, slender build with either braids or dreadlocks. He is said to be in his late teens or early twenties and was last seen wearing dark clothing and a dark baseball hat. The suspect left the area in a maroon 4 door midsized vehicle, which was driven by a white female with shoulder length blonde hair.

Monday afternoon, Police say that the victim is not believed to have known the the shooter. The two apparently were involved in a verbal altercation after a traffic related issue, when the still unknown suspect shot the victim in the stomach.

Investigators ask anyone with information to contact them at 913-971-6950 or the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS (8477).
