OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – A party at an Overland Park Airbnb located at 145th Terrace and Knox Street, left a woman dead.

Neighbors say they saw car after car arrive last night. A view they say has become the norm at this house which is often rented out according to people who live in the area

“They make a lot of noise until 3 or 4 a.m., we can’t sleep,” said Eva Yeung, who lives right next to the house.

Shortly after, neighbors learned that police were responding to the fatal shooting in what is usually a quiet neighborhood and quiet town, which averages fewer than 10 homicides a year.

“It’s very peaceful and you know, it’s never happened here and I’ve lived here for over 16 years, and this is the first time,” Yeung said.

Prior to the officer’s arrival, the victim had been taken to hospital by family members, where he later died from his injuries.

The same sentiments were expressed by the Overland Park PD.

“It doesn’t normally happen in Overland Park, it doesn’t normally happen in this neighborhood, so the neighbors are a little nervous,” said John Lacy of OPD.

Police say they have questioned more than a dozen people and no one speaks, as they plead for help from other revelers and neighbors. People like Eva Yeung, who lives 20 feet from the house and has two teenagers, want the change to happen now so no more visitors stay here.

“I hope our owners association will look into this issue, and maybe we will have to adjust the rules and regulations,” Yeung said.

The victim was identified as Sharell Holoman of Wichita, Kansas.
