Killed – Mickey Lobdell (Nodaway County, KS)

male

A little after 11 p.m., the Nodaway County Sheriff’s Department, and state troopers, responded to a domestic dispute that left a Kansas man dead.

“The caller said that there had been some sort of altercation at the home. That they needed a deputy and an ambulance because someone had been shot,” said Sheriff Darren White.

At least a dozen family members gathered at 10197 Icon Road, just northwest of Hopkins, for a family function.

Alcohol was involved.

Sheriff Darren White, with the Nodaway County Sheriff’s Department, said 34-year old Mickey Lobdell, was very drunk and began making threats toward his uncle, 51-year-old Lewis Schrodt.

(MARYVILLE, Mo.) Nodaway County Prosecutor Robert Rice will not file charges against a man after he shot and killed a relative this past December.

Lewis Schrodt shot Mickey Lobdell in the chest after a domestic dispute near Clearmont, Mo. in December 2013. Lobdell later died.

“Missouri’s self-defense and castle doctrine is clear,” Rice said in a statement. “You have a right to defend yourself on your property against death or serious physical injury. In this case, Mr. Schrodt acted within his legal right and defended himself.”

According to a release from Rice, Schrodt was defending himself and fired two warning shots before firing the fatal shot. According to Rice’s statment, Lobdell had been drinking and Schrodt, who suffers from physical disabilites, felt threatened by Lobdell who was threatening and approaching Schrodt when he was shot.

Rice also said Lobdel had outstanding warrants in Kansas and had a history of criminal convictions.

According to Nodaway County Sheriff Darren White, Lobdell was Schrodt’s nephew. The shooting happened during a family gathering.

The St. Joseph News-Press (http://bit.ly/1cxdD0v) reports that 34-year-old Mickey Lobdell of Manchester, Kan., was killed Friday night near the town of Hopkins.

Attempted Murder/Suicide – Wounded – Man (Wichita, KS)

male

A man who walked into a gift shop Thursday and shot his ex-girlfriend’s boyfriend before turning the shotgun on himself has died, Wichita police confirmed on Monday.

The 40-year-old man shot himself in the head shortly after 2 p.m. on Thursday at the Flying Pig Gift Boutique, 2600 E. Douglas, and died just before 5 p.m. Friday at Wesley Medical Center, Capt. Brent Allred said.

Police said he went into the boutique and ordered everyone in the shop to leave except his 31-year-old ex-girlfriend and the 46-year-old man who is her new boyfriend. She fled out a back door with others, but the boyfriend was shot as he walked toward the front of the store to confront the shooter.

The victim left the store, heard another shot and thought his girlfriend might be in danger, so he broke a window on the west side of the business as a distraction, police said. When he re-entered the store, he found the shooter on the floor.

Both victims were taken to Wesley for treatment, police said.

WICHITA, Kan. — UPDATE: The man accused of shooting another and then himself at an east Wichita business Thursday afternoon has died.

The shooting happened around 2:15 p.m. at the Flying Pig Gift Boutique, a resale shop in the 2600 block of east Douglas. That’s two blocks east of Grove.

According to Wichita Police, a 40-year-old man walked into the store, which is owned by his 31-year-old ex-girlfriend. He was carrying a shotgun and asked everyone inside to leave, saying he was looking for two people.

His ex-girlfriend left the store through the backdoor at the same time her current 46-year-old boyfriend walked in.

The suspect confronted the other man, then shot him in the leg/groin area. The 46-year-old was able to get out of the store, then heard two more shots. He peeked in through a window and saw the suspect had shot himself in the head.

Police arrived, and both men were rushed to a local hospital.

The victim is now listed in good condition and is expected to be released on Saturday.

The suspect passed away at around 5 p.m. Friday, his sister said. She also said that despite police reports saying he was expected to recover, he had a slim chance of survival. No names were released.

Police believe the shooting was domestic-related. Officers say the suspect had sought out his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend.

The 46-year-old had earlier reported to police earlier this month that the suspect had threatened him over the phone.
