3 Dead After Shootings at Kansas Jewish Facilities

Apr 13, 2014

Updated 7:00 p.m. ET Sunday

Authorities say three people were killed on Sunday after shootings in a Kansas City suburb. The Associated Press reports that two people died at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City campus in Overland Park and one was killed at Village Shalom, a nearby retirement community. Two more people were shot at but not injured, the AP said.

Overland Park Police Chief John Douglass said that a person who had been reported earlier to be in critical condition was one of the three dead, according to AP.

The Jewish Community Center's Facebook page is advising visitors that a "shooting incident" happened near a campus entrance and says the facility is on lockdown.

A man in his 70s was taken into custody following the shootings. That person's identity and status remains unknown. Ages and identities of the victims have not been released.
