A deadly shooting at a home in south Overland Park has brought renewed attention to local rules regarding short-term rentals in Johnson County.

Overland Park Police say a Wichita woman, Sharell Holloman, was shot at a home in the 9700 block of W. 145th Terrace early Sunday morning as the house was being rented out on a short-term vacation rental.

Holloman later died at a local hospital. Anthony Duane Smith, 45, of Topeka has been charged with one count of second degree murder in Holloman’s death.
