LEE’S SUMMIT, Mo. — Lee’s Summit police are investigating after one person was injured in a shooting outside of a Red Lobster restaurant Wednesday evening.

According to police, around 8:45 p.m. people inside of two cars met in the parking lot of the Red Lobster near Northwest Chipman Road and Northwest Blue Parkway.

Police say people inside those cars had a brief conversation before shots were fired. The vehicles then left the scene.
