OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) — Overland Park police say a 17-year-old male was fatally shot in his home and the case is being investigated as a homicide.

Police spokesman John Lacy says officers were called to the teenager’s apartment Wednesday evening.

He was identified Thursday as Ben Workman.

The preliminary investigation indicates Workman had two visitors and a fight broke out before he was shot.
