OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) – A woman was killed and a girl was wounded after someone fired several shots into a suburban Kansas City duplex on the same block where two young men were fatally shot last week.

The Kansas City Star reports police were called just before 6:30 p.m. Monday to an Overland Park, Kansas, residence where a woman was fatally wounded. Officers also found an 11-year-old girl with nonlife-threatening injuries.

Police later identified the dead woman as 36-year-old Quaushey L. Harris.
