Leawood police have recovered an SUV investigators believe was used in a shooting after Center High School's graduation ceremony at the Leawood United Methodist Church of the Resurrection that left two students wounded.
The dark blue Dodge Durango appears to be the vehicle that fled the scene as officers were responding to the shooting about 8:20 p.m. Thursday in the parking lot after the ceremony had ended at the church at 137th Street and Briar Drive.
Police recovered the Durango as investigators are continuing to follow more than four dozen leads in the case, Leawood Police Capt. Brad Robbins said in a written statement Monday.
Security members were responding to a fight in the parking lot when shots were heard in another part of the lot. Two students were wounded. One was found on the sidewalk outside the church, and the second victim was in a vehicle and was taken to a nearby hospital. Both were treated and released.
The Center School District is in south Kansas City and is one of several school districts in the area that use the Church of the Resurrection for their graduation ceremonies.
Multiple agencies are still processing physical evidence, and investigators continue to seek out witnesses, Robbins said.
Anyone with information should call the Leawood Police Department at 913-663-9309 or the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS (8477).
