Shawnee Police say a man was injured in an accidental shooting on Thursday evening.
Major Jason Brunner says officers were dispatched at 8:03 p.m. to the First Baptist Church of Shawnee at 11400 Johnson Drive.
Radio traffic indicates Johnson County Med-Act transported a 20-year-old man to an area hospital with a gunshot wound to his left thigh.
“Condition of the victim is unknown but the injuries appeared to be non-life threatening,” Brunner said. “The case is being investigated as an accidental discharge of a firearm.”
While investigating the shooting, officers searched a second vehicle parked near the victim’s vehicle.
After searching the vehicle a man was placed in handcuffs and then into the back of a police vehicle, before being released.
“There was a subsequent narcotics arrest that resulted from the initial discharge of a firearm investigation,” Brunner said.
The man detained following the narcotics search was released a short time later at the scene.
Police say the church hosts an open gym on Thursday nights.
No other details have been released.
