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.

Shawnee officials say 75th Street will be shifted to the north half of the roadway for pavement replacement and bridge work. Traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction between Switzer Road and E. Frontage Road.

The Kansas Department of Transportation says the ramps to and from Interstate 35, south of 75th Street will also be closed. Spokesperson Kimberly Qualls says the northbound Interstate 35 exit ramp to 75th Street and the entrance ramp from 75th Street to southbound Interstate 35 will both close at 11 a.m. Thursday. The ramps will remain closed until late August.

Once traffic is shifted to the north half of 75th Street, eastbound traffic will not be able to access northbound 75th Street.

Qualls says there will be a marked detour, utilizing 67th Street and Antioch Road.

Northbound I-35 traffic will detour via 67th Street exit and take eastbound 67th Street to Antioch Road, then southbound Antioch Road to eastbound 75th Street back to I-35. (See KDOT provided map below)

Traffic for the ramp from 75th Street to southbound I-35 will be detoured eastbound on 75th Street to Antioch Road, then northbound on Antioch Road to westbound 67th Street and back to southbound I-35.

Merriam and Overland Park fire crews are investigating after an electrical fire forced more than 20 people from their apartments late Monday.

Firefighters were called to the Georgetown Apartments in the 7100 block of Eby Drive just before 10 p.m.. Arriving firefighters reported a fire in an electrical panel in the basement of the two story apartment building.

Overland Park Fire's media manager Jason Rhodes says crews were able to knock down the fire with extinguishers, but because of the electricity, were unable to offensively fight the fire.

KCP&L arrived around 11:30 p.m. and cut power to the building.

After power was cut, firefighters were able to quickly knock the fire down and declared the fire under control about 11:50 p.m..



Rhodes says, "Firefighters did rescue a number of animals from the building. It's believed that 16 units are currently displaced and apartment management is working to relocate residents."

During the fire, power was turned off to the entire apartment complex. KCP&L is working to restore power to the other buildings in the complex, while leaving power off at the fire building.

No injuries were reported.
