Shots Fired Near US Rep's Home

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. -- Police in Overland Park, Kansas say a dispute over an air conditioner repair led to a gun being fired near the home of U.S. Representative Kevin Yoder Friday.

According to Overland Park Police, a homeowner in the neighborhood became upset when he found out how much a contractor planned to charge  for a new capacitor for his air conditioning unit.

They got into an altercation, and punches were thrown.

Police say the repairman threw his hammer at the homeowner, and the homeowner took out his gun and fired a shot.

 "All of a sudden he saw a hammer fly past him and he turned around and here comes this contractor starting to punch and kick him," said Officer John Lacy of the Overland Park Police Department.

The repairman took off before police arrived.
Congressman Yoder wasn't home at the time of the gunfire.
