Overland Park police are looking for answers as they investigate what led to a shooting that killed a 17 year old Wednesday night.
Ben Workman was found already dead when police arrived at his apartment in the 8000 block of Farley around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday. Workman resided in the apartment with his girlfriend and an adult, according to Overland Park police.
Though police have not issued a description of any suspects in the case, they confirmed that a resident of the apartment complex did see two people running from the apartment building around the time of the shooting.
A family friend has set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for a funeral.
“Another senseless murder, a family destroyed at the loss of their brother, and a mother without her youngest son,” reads the page. “As the police are working diligently at catching the person(s) responsible; the family is trying to come to terms with this loss and how to manage a funeral. No one has money set aside for their 17 year child to be put to rest.”
