Assault rifles fired in the air on residential street, police say

December 11, 2012

Bonner Springs police are seeking further information about individuals who appear to have shot assault rifles into the air on a residential street.

Lt. Rick Schubert said residents reported hearing shots fired on their street about 11:10 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 8, in the 400 block of Jamison Drive. Schubert said eyewitnesses saw a dark-colored car speeding away from the scene.

When police investigated, they found shell casings consistent with AK-47 assault rifle in the street. However, they could not find bullet holes or any other evidence that homes or other buildings in the area that had been struck, so police believe the shots were fired into the sky.

Police are still investigating the case, so anyone with information may contact the police department at 913-422-7800.
