OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – Three people were reportedly shot and killed after a gunman fired shots outside a Jewish Community Center in Kansas Sunday afternoon.

FOX 13 News sister station FOX 4 in Kansas City reports that police confirmed the deaths of three people, and they report it is believed a fourth victim is in critical condition.

The shootings happened outside the Jewish Community Center and Village Shalom, an assisted living facility. Police have reportedly arrested a suspect, described only as a white male in his 70s.

Witness Mike Metcalf told FOX 4: “My son and I were walking into the Jewish Community Center this afternoon for an umpire clinic, around the west side and all of the sudden we heard a gunshot, a pretty loud gunshot. I turned to look to my right and I can see a man standing outside a car with a shotgun, what to me looked like a shotgun, and there was somebody laying on the ground.”
