Overland Park Police are investigating an armed robbery that reportedly occurred on the eighth floor of the Marriott Hotel Monday night.
Officers were called to the hotel, 10800 Metcalf Avenue, just before 8:30 p.m.
Recorded radio traffic states that dispatchers received multiple 911 calls, and all callers reported different things happening inside the hotel.
Overland Park officers and several Kansas Highway Patrol Troopers surrounded the building and closed all parking lot entrances for a time as they searched for a suspect.
All entrances to the parking lot and the doors to the hotel lobby reopened at about 9:20 p.m.
Officer John Lacy, the Overland Park Police Department spokesperson, confirms officers are investigating an aggravated robbery at the hotel.
The suspect fled the hotel property before police arrived, Lacy said.
Johnson County Med-Act and Overland Park firefighters were dispatched to stage in the area of the call for a possible shooting victim. But those units were told to disregard the call shortly after being dispatched.
Officer Lacy confirms no injuries were reported.
Police have not released a description of the suspect or any other details about the incident.
