HARVEY COUNTY, Kan. (KSNW) – The Kansas Bureau of Investigation and the Harvey County Sheriff’s Office are continuing the investigation into the homicides of three individuals who were found Sunday evening in the 8600 block of North Spring Lake Road.

Upon arriving at the scene, deputies discovered three bodies outside the home. The preliminary investigation indicates that the victims died of gunshot wounds. Harvey County Sheriff T. Walton says the victims found were a 37-year-old woman and two men aged 33 and 52. Walton says the two younger victims were a couple who were friends with the other man. Their names haven’t been released. Also found at the residence was an 18-month-old child who was unharmed. The child is now in custody of a grandparent. The names of the victims are not being released at this time, pending notification of families.

Immediately following the incident, law enforcement requested assistance locating a maroon vehicle. This vehicle has since been found due to the assistance of many concerned citizens of Harvey County.

Investigators also say they do not believe there is any immediate danger to neighbors because they believe someone specifically targeted the three victims in the shooting.
