An officer in the area of S. Parker and W. Sheridan Streets called out that he had just heard at least six gunshots in the area.
The officer stopped a green truck near the intersection of S. Troost and W. Wabash Streets.
When the truck stopped, one man got out and ran. The officer held two other men at gunpoint until additional officers could arrive to assist. Those two men were taken into custody without further incident.
Officers set up a large perimeter to search for the alleged shooter with a K-9 unit. They called off the search after more than an hour. Police knew the man's name and what he was last seen wearing.
Bullet casings were found in the 600 block of S. Lee Avenue in front of three different homes. Two of those homes were hit by bullets. A vehicle in the driveway of one home was found to have a flat tire, possibly from the same gunfire.
Both homes were reported to be occupied at the time of the shooting, no one inside either home was injured.
Sergeant Brian Hill says officers took the third man into custody around 5:30 a.m.. He was located inside an apartment in the 1000 block of W. Elm Street, just a short distance from the car stop.
Police currently classify the case as "Criminal Discharge of a Firearm."
The case remains under investigation and anyone with information is asked to call Olathe Police at 913-971-6950 or the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477.
