Olathe, KS - At least one law enforcement officer shot and killed a person during an attempt to serve a warrant, shortly before 6 p.m. Wednesday at a home near the intersection of Park and Keeler Streets. The deceased has been identified as 26-year-old Ciara Howard.

Neighbors heard officers yelling orders for someone to come out for several minutes before they decided to enter the residence. 

"They were in there about 10-15 minutes, and then we heard them say, 'Shots fired!'" said Charlotte Eichenberg, who lives in the area. "A bunch of them exited the building, ran out."

No officers were hurt. 

The Johnson County Shooting Investigation Team has been called in for an inquiry.
