Woman dead, girl wounded in shooting just blocks from where 2 young men killed last week


OVERLAND PARK, Kansas — A woman was killed and a girl was wounded after someone fired several shots into a suburban Kansas City duplex on the same block where two young men were fatally shot last week.

The Kansas City Star (http://bit.ly/1H6J5yJ ) reports police were called just before 6:30 p.m. Monday to an Overland Park, Kansas, residence where a woman in her 30s was fatally wounded. Officers also found an 11-year-old girl with nonlife-threatening injuries.

Police say there were nine people inside the duplex at the time of the shooting, including seven children. They say a suspect fled in a gray Pontiac Grand Prix.

Investigators are looking into whether there is a connection between the shooting and one last week that left two people dead.
