Overland Park police say they no longer need to identify the two persons of interest from Wednesday's shots fired incident outside Oak Park Mall.

Police are asking for information about a possible suspect vehicle, only described as a "dark SUV crossover."

Captain Brian Houlahan of the Overland Park Police Department says officers responded to the mall, 11121 West 95th Street, about 8:30 p.m. after receiving a report of possible gunshots inside the building.

"Multiple police departments from Johnson County, Kansas responded to the area to assist," Capt. Houlahan said. "Officers found no evidence of any shooting or injured individuals inside the mall."

Officers from Lenexa, Shawnee, Olathe, Leawood, and the Johnson County Sheriff's Office were among those who responded to assist with the call.

While investigating officers learned that an unoccupied vehicle in the northeast parking lot of the mall had been hit multiple times by gunfire. The northeast parking lot is near the food court.

"There have been no individuals coming forward to advise they were injured as a result of this shooting," Capt. Houlahan said.

Shortly before midnight, Overland Park Police Department Public Information Officer John Lacy advised that officers had cleared the area of the incident.

Police continue to investigate the incident and ask anyone who may have information that could assist them to call the Overland Park Police Department at 913-895-6300 or the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477. Callers to the TIPS Hotline can always remain anonymous.
