The Jewish Community Center is right behind the Sprint campus where I used to work; this appears to be a hate crime from initial reporting. Initial reports also said 2 dead, but a subsequent report from CBS sets the tally at 1 death. NBC local news reports three are now confirmed dead; one died at Overland Park Regional Medical Center while undergoing surgery for critical injuries.

I will caution all my readers that initial reports at a shooting like this are usually not wholly accurate, and the most accurate account will likely come at the 5PM central news conference. Several local station streaming links are below.

Police said they are investigating fatal shootings at the Overland Park Jewish Community Center and at an assisted living center several blocks south.

Police said one person was killed at the Jewish Community Center at 5800 W. 115th Street and another was killed at Village Shalom, an assisted living facility at 123rd Street and Nall.

A third person was shot and critically injured. That person was taken to a nearby hospital.

Investigators said the entire Jewish Community Center campus has been placed on lockdown while police search the area.

Update from KCTV5:

One shooting was reported about 1 p.m. Sunday at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City, according to an Overland Park Fire Department spokesman. This happened at the Lewis and Shirley White Theatre inside the center.

About 75 people were inside the theatre, most of them children.

Teens were auditioning for KC Superstar and parents were frantically trying to get to their children.

A second shooting was reported at Village Shalom, which is an assisted living center at 5500 West 123rd St.
