KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — A suspect who barricaded himself inside a home shot two children and a woman in Kansas City, Kansas, Wednesday before turning the gun on himself, the Wyandotte County Sheriff’s office said.
Officers who responded to a call of a shooting at Wellborn Park found a woman suffering from gunshot wounds.
The suspect fled the scene and later barricaded himself inside the Kansas City, Kansas home, the sheriff’s office said.
Officers set up a perimeter around the house after hearing gunshots. When they entered the home they found the suspect dead and one of the children dead. The other child was suffering from gunshot wounds, authorities said.
Sheriff’s department spokesman Capt. Kyle Harvey said conditions of the injured child and the woman were not immediately available.
The woman was the suspect’s girlfriend but their relationship with the children had not been determined, Harvey said. No names have been released.
