Area in red is the apartment complex where evidence was found
Overland Park Police are investigating after a man was shot in the foot early Saturday morning.
Merriam Police were called to the area of Antioch Road and Interstate 35 on multiple 911 reports of shots fired and a possible shooting shortly before 2 a.m.. A Merriam officer contacted a man on Antioch Road who had been shot. The officer requested Johnson County Med-Act to respond.
Johnson County Med-Act transported a 24-year-old man with a single gunshot wound to his left foot to the University of Kansas Hospital in Kansas City, Kansas. His injuries are said to be non life-threatening.
Overland Park Police responded to assist Merriam with the investigation. A short time after the victim was transported, evidence was found in an apartment complex near 54th Terrace and Antioch Road, just inside Overland Park city limits.
Overland Park Police Public Information Officer Gary Mason says, "the shooter is believed to be known to the victim but we haven't identified them yet. The victim isn't giving us much help yet so it's obviously still under investigation."
Antioch Road was closed from Interstate 35, south to 55th Street. The ramp from northbound I-35 to Antioch Road was also closed as police investigated. Antioch and the ramp reopened around 4:30 a.m..
