OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — A party at an Overland Park Airbnb located at 145th Terrace and Knox street, has left one women dead.
Neighbors say they saw car after car pulling in last night. A sight they say has become the norm at this house that is often rented out according to people that live in the area
“They make lots of noise until 3 or 4 o’clock in the morning, we cannot sleep,” said Eva Yeung, who lives right next door to the home.
Shortly after, neighbors heard that police were responding to the deadly shooting in what is typically a quiet neighborhood and a quiet city, that on average sees less than 10 homicides a year.
“This is very peaceful and you know, it never happened here and I’ve been living here more than 16 years, and this is the first time,” said Yeung.
Prior to the officer’s arrival, the victim had been taken to the hospital by family members, where she later died from her injuries.
The same sentiments were expressed by the Overland Park PD.
“This doesn’t normally happen in Overland Park, it doesn’t normally happen in this neighborhood, so the neighbors are little on edge,” said John Lacy of OPD.
Police say they’ve questioned upwards of a dozen people and no one is talking, as they plead for help from other partygoers and neighbors. People like Eva Yeung, who live 20 feet from the home and who has two teenagers, want change to happen now so no more visitors stay here.
“I hope our home owners association will look into this problem, and maybe we need to adjust rules and regulations,” said Yeung.
The victim has been identified as Sharell Holoman of Wichita, Kansas.
If anybody has any information on this incident, they’re asked to contact the Overland Park Police Department at 913-344-8742 or the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477.
