Lawrence Police Say Robbery Was Motive Behind Triple Shooting
LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Lawrence police say a shooting near the University of Kansas campus was the result of an attempted robbery. Two of the three people shot Sunday evening were Kansas students. Sgt. Trent McKinley says one of the victims was released Sunday while the others remain hospitalized. Their injuries were not considered life-threatening. Police on Tuesday continued to search for the two suspects, who fled toward the Kansas campus after the confrontation. McKinley says they both had weapons when they fled. The Lawrence Journal-World reports that at least one of the suspects, if not both, wore a mask when they entered the home. McKinley says the suspects and victims knew each other. No names have been released.
