Hospital Campus Safe and Secure Following Overnight Incident Near Hospital Entrance

December 04, 2018

Kansas City, Kan. – At approximately 11:30 p.m. on December 3, a shooting at 7th and Osage resulted in the victim driving himself and a female passenger to The University of Kansas Hospital. It is believed both people had been wounded. They were being pursued by the suspected shooter. The driver exited the car at the entrance to the emergency department ramp and began running up Cambridge street toward the hospital main entrance which was secured as normal for late night hours. The suspect caught up with the driver at the entrance doors where he shot the driver again. The shooter then turned the gun on himself.

Both shooting victims and the suspect were taken into the emergency department for treatment.

No hospital or university employees were involved in the shooting.

The hospital and all clinics will maintain normal operations.

We are especially grateful to the University of Kansas Medical Center Police Department who responded immediately and to the KCK Police.
