Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson told MSC News that the incident happened on the 100 block of N. 9th Street in Atchison just after 8:00 a.m.

"According to the victim, the suspect was in the living room area of the house, the victim was on a staircase that leads to a second story when several shots were fired in her direction," Wilson told MSC News. "She was able to flee the house, ran down the street, [and] police were notified."

We are officially one week from the start of Fall and it certainly will not be feeling that way across the area as we start the new week. This morning, temperatures are mild and it's feeling very humid. That trend will continue as we go through the day with temperatures topping out in the lower 90s
