Police investigating the shooting of a man on U.S. 69 in Overland Park found shell casings along the highway Sunday evening.
Shortly before 7 p.m., witnesses called 911 reporting that they heard up to six shots being fired along U.S. 69 near 91st Street.
Because of barriers in the area, the gunfire sounded as if it were coming from both sides of the highway, said Officer Jackie Zickel, a public information officer for Overland Park police.
Shortly thereafter, police received a call about a silver Chrysler car being driven the wrong direction on 95th Street. A witness saw the same car headed south on Quivira Road with a bullet hole in it, Zickel said. The witness said the car was being driven erratically.
Police found the car at 110th and Oakmont streets in Overland Park. Inside the car was a man with a gunshot wound.
The man was taken to a hospital and was conscious and talking. The extent of his injuries was not available.
Police reduced traffic to one lane along southbound U.S. 69 near 91st Street while they investigated. They found shell casings on the highway.
Police did not have any information on the shooter.
