Prairie Village police release picture of minivan involved in shooting


PRAIRIE VILLAGE, Kan. — Investigators release a picture of a minivan they believe was involved in a shooting in Prairie Village Sunday evening.

The picture is of a gold Chrysler minivan with a missing rear passenger-side hubcap. Police believe the minivan had a temporary tag from Missouri.

Witnesses told investigators that the minivan and another car were on Roe Avenue around 6 p.m. when someone inside the minivan shot at the victim. A bullet hit the victim’s car, but no one was injured.

“It looks like this was more of a road rage incident, and we don’t have any connection between the suspect vehicle and our victim vehicle. It just seems to be a random incident,” Prairie Village police Capt. Eric McCullough said.

They also told police that the driver was a white man who wore a white tank top. Witnesses said there was a black man in the minivan with him at the time of the shooting.

“This is not common for us. This kind of crime is not a common thing,” McCullough said.” We’d like to keep it that way. We’d certainly like to get in touch with those who were involved and figure out what’s going on. If there are some criminal charges to be had, we’d certainly be willing to do that as well.”

The shooting remains under investigation. If you know someone who drives a minivan matching the above description, call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS or the Prairie Village Police Department at 913-642-6868.
