Sherriff's Office Investigates Three Deaths

Press Release

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office (DGSO) is investigating the deaths of three people, including a 3-year-old girl.
At about 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, August 13, 2017, deputies responded to the report of a shooting in the driveway of a residence in the 1000 Blk of E900 Rd., southwest of Lawrence. When deputies arrived, they found a 36-year-old woman in the driveway that had been shot several times. She died on scene. The woman was not affiliated with the residence in any way.
Law enforcement later located the woman’s vehicle in a parking area at the Baker Wetlands, south of 31st and Haskell streets. A 3-year-old girl and a 41-year-old man were found dead in the wetlands not far from the vehicle. Their manners of death have not yet been determined.
It is believed the male is the suspected shooter of the woman. The 3-year-old was believed to be the daughter of both the man and the woman. DGSO does not believe any other individuals are involved in the deaths.
DGSO is continuing to investigate the deaths. No other information will be released at this time.
