April 16th Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up


Nothing of much significance to report this morning.

At 2:09 a.m., Lawrence Police were called to the area of the 2600 block of Winterbrook Drive on a report of a single gunshot heard in the area around the walking trail at Green Meadows Park. Dispatchers only reported receiving the one call regarding the possible gunshot. Officers checked the area and were unable to locate anything out of the ordinary in the area.

Dispatchers also received a report of a vehicle traveling westbound on the South Lawrence Trafficway that the caller said was "in excess of 100 miles per hour." The caller had lost sight of the vehicle and was only able to give very limited information about the vehicle. Officers checked and did not report any vehicles speeding as the caller had described.

Police also responded on at least two attempted burglaries. One the caller reported a subject entered the house before being scared off by the residents. Another of the burglaries, the caller reported a subject was attempting to remove the window screens. As far as I am aware there was nothing stolen from either incident and no injuries were reported.

The activity blogged here is only a sampling of some of the things that Douglas County Law Enforcement and Lawrence-Douglas County Fire & Medical respond on. To see a complete list of Lawrence Police activity, the department has that available on their website along with several easy to use maps that show approximate locations for Police activity.
