A person was seriously injured in a shooting Saturday in eastern Lawrence, emergency radio traffic indicated.


Police were dispatched around 5:15 p.m. Saturday to an apartment complex near 13th Street and Maple Lane for a reported shooting.

First responder radio traffic indicated someone had been shot somewhere outside the apartment building, then went inside. Reports over radio traffic are preliminary and have not always been confirmed.

A Lawrence Times reporter at the scene saw medics put one patient in an ambulance.

The red pin on the map shows the approximate location of the incident.

We’ve reached out to the Lawrence Police Department to request more information, including whether police believe there is an ongoing threat to public safety connected to the reported shooting.

We’ll updated this post as soon as possible when we have more information.
