OLATHE, Kan. (AP) — Authorities have located a person of interest in the deadly shooting of a 17-year-old in suburban Kansas City.

Police in Olathe say the person of interest is 18. He was contacted Sunday as part of the investigation into the death of Rowan Padgett, of Overland Park, who was found dead Friday on a driveway. Officials wouldn’t say if the person of interest was taken into custody or if he is a suspect in the case. No charges have been filed.

Counselors will be available for students Monday at two Olathe schools where Padgett was a student.
