EDGERTON, Kan. — The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office is searching for the person or people behind two weekend shootings.

The first happened around 11 p.m. Saturday night near East Second and East Nelson streets in Edgerton. Investigators said seven rounds hit a home in that area.

The next evening around 8:30 p.m. on Sunday, three gunshots were reported in the same area.

Deputies are investigating to determine the reason for the gunfire and if the two shootings are related.

At this point, deputies do not believe these two shootings are connected to vandalism at construction sites that caused thousands of dollars in damages.
