When these types of shootings take place, initial news reports often are inaccurate, so caution is urged.


Kansas City News41 identifies the following person as having been taken into custody, and says at least 3 people dead:

Three people are dead following multiple shootings reported at the Jewish Community Center in Overland Park and Village Shalom.

Overland Park Police confirm multiple shots were fired at the center, which is located at 5801 W 115th St. and Village Shalom, a retirement home located at 5500 W. 123rd. Both areas are currently on lockdown.

Police took one man into custody at the Valley Park Elementary at 123rd and Nall. The man was heard yelling “heil Hitler” as he was taken into custody.

A 41 Action News photographer on the scene spoke with a man who says another man pointed a gun at him and shot the windows out of his car. That person was not injured.

In this video, he pretty clearly says Heil Hitler, so not really sure why police confused as to motive:
