LAWRENCE — A man was injured Saturday evening in a shooting at Kohl's in Lawrence.

Lawrence Police Department officers and emergency personnel were called around 7:45 p.m. to the area of East 56th Street and Mitthoefer Road on the report of a person shot, Lawrence Police Department Capt. Tracey Cantrell said. When they arrived, they found a man who had been shot and discovered he was injured in an incident at Kohl's near Pendleton Pike.

Two vehicles ended up in the Kohl's parking lot and exchanged gun fire, Cantrell said. Detectives are still working to learn where the vehicles came from and why they were shooting at each other.

The victim was taken to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries, Cantrell said.

At this time, detectives believe this was an isolated incident and there is no threat to the public, Cantrell said.

The identities of the victim and possible suspects have not been released at this time.
