The Overland Park Police Department is trying to identify two people who fired flare guns at several apartments.

The incident happened on Thursday, April 5 just before 10 p.m. in the 10200 block of 81st Terrace.

Neighbors called police saying that they heard gunshots. 

No one was directly hit by the shots, but police think a flare gun was fired at the houses. 

Three different people said a projectile from a flare gun hit their apartment. 

One shot broke someone's window and started a small fire inside the victim's home, which the fire department had to extinguish.

Officers say two other victims reported that the same thing happened to them. 

"It can cause a lot of damage, even bodily injury," said John Lacy with the Overland Park Police Department. "The flare could have struck a child."

The authorities want to talk to the two people pictured. If you have any information, please call the Overland Park Police Department at 913-344-8721 or the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS.
