A 30-year-old Kansas City, Kan., man suffered a broken jaw during a fight at 2:50 a.m. Sunday in the parking lot of Hardee's restaurant, 2030 W. 23rd, police reported today. Officers reported that the victim and a friend, a 23-year-old Overland Park man, stopped to get directions at the restaurant and got into an argument with some other men.

Burglars caused more than $500 damage to Lawrence High School after breaking in between 1:30 a.m. and 9:40 a.m. Saturday. Police said burglars apparently entered the building through a window and then went through several rooms and offices. School officials were unsure whether anything was taken, but estimated property damage at a minimum of $500. Police have no suspects.
