Police say the subject inside the vehicle shot himself. That subject remained conscious and moving but was non-compliant with officer's commands.

Officers evacuated about 30 people from inside the Houlihan's, through a back door. At least one other nearby business was evacuated.

The Olathe Tactical Support Unit was called to the scene and secured the subject's weapon, inside the vehicle.

Johnson County Med-Act transported the subject to Overland Park Regional Medical Center with life threatening injuries.

The subject has been identified as a 27-year-old Houlihan's employee and Overland Park resident. Police say he died at the hospital, early Thursday morning.

During the situation, several area roads were closed, including 119th Street between Interstate 35 and Renner Boulevard. Renner Boulevard was also closed between 119th Street and Bass Pro Drive. All roads reopened shortly after 12 a.m. Thursday.
