OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Police are trying to identify a killer who shot a man early Monday morning at a condo complex right across the street from city hall.
At about 5:20 a.m., police say witnesses who live in the Greenbrier Condominiums reported hearing a gunshot in the parking lot. This is unusual because the complex is only a block away from a police station.
Officers arrived to find 35-year-old Jeren Hinton shot to death.
Police say the victim did not live at Greenbrier, but is not being identified by police yet. Police say witnesses saw two or three individuals running away and then saw two cars: a white sedan and a black sedan leave the complex on West 85th Street.
“You’re right across from city hall and also Shawnee Mission West,” said John Lacy of the Overland Park police.
“We were here very quickly. We just missed them by moments I’m sure. But at the same time, Overland Park is a safe place, especially this complex behind me. I have friends who live here in the complex and it’s very quiet.”
Police say they’re checking surveillance cameras in the area to try to get a better description of the suspects.
Anyone with information about what happened should call Overland Park police as soon as possible or the TIPS Hotline at (816) 474-TIPS.
