Three People Dead After Sunday Morning Shooting In Lenexa
Three people died after a shooting in a Kansas City suburb on Sunday.
Lenexa Police Department spokesman Officer Danny Chavez said the shooting was reported around 1:20 a.m. Sunday inside a home in the 8400 block of Laurelwood Street in Lenexa.
The Kansas City Star reports that three people with gunshot wounds were found inside the house. Chavez said one person died at the house. The other two victims were taken to a hospital where they later died. The victims’ names and ages were not immediately released, but it was two men and one woman who died.
This is the first homicide reported in Lenexa since last May.
UPDATE: Lenexa police say a shooting that left three people dead over the weekend apparently was a murder-suicide. Police spokesman Danny Chavez identified those killed early Sunday as 20-year-old John Williamson and 22-year-old Sara Beck, both of Belton, Missouri. A third person, 37-year-old Dustin Johnson, of Lenexa, also died. KSHB-TV reports Chavez said Monday that investigators believe Johnson shot Williamson and Beck before shooting himself.
