OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — An Overland Park woman is dead Tuesday morning after she was shot near 7th Street and Armstrong Avenue.
Police said they responded to southbound I-35 and Antioch around 12:30 a.m. to assist a Mission police officer on a traffic stop.
The Mission officer noticed a female passenger, later identified as 27-year-old Tanna K. Moyer, had been shot. Police originally said the woman was 28 but later corrected that statement.
Police said they believe the man was driving fast to get Moyer to the hospital. He is not considered a suspect at this time.
“The preliminary investigation revealed she was meeting with an acquaintance,” KCK spokesperson Officer Cameron Morgan said. “That’s all that’s all I know for sure right now. I cannot confirm if she was visiting the casino, but I know she’s not from our city, she and someone else was coming to our city to meet with another individual.”
Police said Moyer had a faint pulse so they performed CPR, but the 27-year-old died at the scene.
“Right now I have no suspect information at this time, no suspect descriptors,” Morgan said. “Still really early in the investigation. I am sure once we look at all the surveillance cameras in the area, we will have more information to release later today.”
Anyone with information is asked to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS.
