Overland Park, Kan. – Authorities have arrested a suspect in a shooting that critically wounded two contract workers outside a suburban Kansas City elementary school.

Overland Park, Kansas, Fire Department spokesman Jason Rhodes says the man was taken into custody Tuesday at a home where authorities found a sport utility vehicle that was carjacked after the shooting at Sunrise Point Elementary School.

The suspect shot two co-workers. No students were present when the shooting occurred.

Rhodes says when police moved closer to the property with armored vehicles, the suspect bolted from the back door and was taken down. His name hasn’t been released.

Police Chief Frank Donchez says the home belonged to the owner of the carjacked vehicle. He says it’s unclear what led the suspect to go to that home, describing it as “bizarre to say the least.”
