An Overland Park woman is dead after a shooting outside a casino in Kansas City, KS.

The shooting happened about 12:30 a.m. Tuesday in a parking garage outside of the 7th Street Casino located at 777 N. Seventh Street Trafficway.

KCK police identified the victim as Tanna K. Moyer, 28.

Overland Park police stopped a vehicle about 1:20 a.m. near southbound Interstate 35 and Antioch Road to assist a Mission officer who had pulled the car over for speeding.

Officers noticed that a Hispanic woman riding in the vehicle had been shot and had a faint pulse. CPR was administered but the woman died on the side of the road.

They say they do not know how the woman and the man driving the vehicle are connected.

“The preliminary investigation revealed that she was meeting up with an acquaintance," Kansas City, KS police spokesman Cameron Morgan said. "That’s all I know for sure right now.”

The driver is not considered a suspect. He says he was trying to take the woman to Shawnee Mission Medical Center, the closest hospital he knew of.

Authorities closed the ramp from southbound I-35 to Antioch Road as they investigated the shooting. It has since reopened.

Officers plan to search casino surveillance video for details about the shooting.

Anyone with information is asked to call the TIPS Hotline (816) 474-TIPS.
