Overland Park, Kansas shooting: Two workers critically wounded outside elementary school

Two people are in critical condition Tuesday morning after a shooting at an elementary school in Overland Park, Kansas, Overland Park police spokesman John Lacy said.

Lacy later told reporters that the suspect is a white male who worked for the same company as the two victims. Sources inside the department verified that two adults are in critical condition, but no students were injured.

Police say the suspect, whose name has not been released.is still on the run.

Grable had tried but failed to carjack another vehicle at a auto wash before stealing the SUV, a black GMC Denali near 149th Street and Metcalf Avenue.

The city says the identity of the suspect is known, and that he tried but failed to carjack another vehicle before stealing the SUV. The suspect was tracked to a home near the shooting scene where he was arrested. He said it's unclear what led Grable to go to that home but described it as "bizarre to say the least".

When that carjacking was unsuccessful, the suspect carjacked another vehicle, which police are looking for.

Police said they discovered the Denali when they gave the carjacking victim a ride home.

Update: We have surrounded a home near W.159th and Rosewood. Police say shots were fired but no one was hit.
