Lawrence police seek 2 in shooting near college campus

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Lawrence police are searching for two men after a shooting injured three people near the University of Kansas campus.

Police spokesman Sgt. Trent McKinley says police think the suspects and victims in Sunday’s shooting know each other but a motive for the shooting has not been released.

McKinley says the search for the shooters was continuing Monday morning.

The victims were taken to Kansas City area hospitals with injuries that were considered life threatening. Their identities weren’t released.

The shooting occurred in a residence just south of the University of Kansas campus and a few blocks from Schwegler Elementary School.

The college issued an alert late in the afternoon after authorities said one of the suspects was seen running toward the campus.
