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.

A man was killed early Tuesday in Junction City when his apartment was invaded by intruders, authorities said.

Junction City police identified the victim as Jose M. Paz, 22.

Emergency responders were called about 1:30 a.m. to a report of a shooting during a home invasion at an apartment unit in the 100 block of W. 16th Street.

Police Chief Tim Brown said there were multiple intruders who entered the unit and fled before officers arrived. He said detectives were attempting to identify the intruders.

Officers found two victims, one Paz and the other a second occupant of the apartment who received minor injuries that weren’t gunshot-related and declined medical treatment.

Paz was taken to Geary Community Hospital, where he later was pronounced dead.

Brown said detectives suspect Paz died from gunshot wounds but were awaiting the results of an autopsy.

Mass Shooting – Killed – Tamesha Lee (Topeka, KS)

Tamesha Lee

Monday marks one year since four people were gunned down in central Topeka, and the person — or, more likely, persons — responsible still are out there. And they probably aren’t far away.

“I believe the suspect or suspects are still in this area,” said Topeka Police Capt. Brian Desch. “It was people in the community that did this and I think there’s people that have information that can help us. I don’t know if they’ve just been reluctant because of some fear or pressure or what, but at some point we’re hoping those people will come forward.”

The grisly discoveries on Dec. 1, 2013, started about 4:10 p.m., when two boys discovered Carla Avery, 45, grievously wounded behind a strip mall in the 1200 block of S.W. 21st.

Not two hours later, when the investigation led to Avery’s home on S.W. Central Park Avenue, police found the bodies of three other people: Tamesha Lee, 34; Eric Christopher Avery, 43; and Marvin Lewis Woods, 56. All had been shot.

Carla Avery died two days later. She is the sister to Eric Avery and the ex-wife of Woods.

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Topeka police believe those responsible for four homicides last year are still living in or near the city.

Carla Avery, 45, was found seriously wounded behind a strip mall in Topeka on Dec. 1. Hours later, three others were found shot to death at Avery’s home — Tamesha Lee, 34; Eric Christopher Avery, 43; and Marvin Lewis Woods, 56. Two of those victims had connections to Avery, who died two days later and was Eric Avery’s sister and Woods’ ex-wife.

A year later, no arrests have been made in the city’s first quadruple homicide case, The Topeka Capital-Journal reported (http://bit.ly/11IxmIC ).

Police Capt. Brian Desch believes the suspect or suspects came from Topeka and that someone knows who was involved. He is asking anyone with information to come forward.

Carla Avery died two days later. She is the sister to Eric Avery and the ex-wife of Woods.

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Topeka police believe those responsible for four homicides last year are still living in or near the city.

Carla Avery, 45, was found seriously wounded behind a strip mall in Topeka on Dec. 1. Hours later, three others were found shot to death at Avery’s home — Tamesha Lee, 34; Eric Christopher Avery, 43; and Marvin Lewis Woods, 56. Two of those victims had connections to Avery, who died two days later and was Eric Avery’s sister and Woods’ ex-wife.

A year later, no arrests have been made in the city’s first quadruple homicide case, The Topeka Capital-Journal reported (http://bit.ly/11IxmIC ).

Police Capt. Brian Desch believes the suspect or suspects came from Topeka and that someone knows who was involved. He is asking anyone with information to come forward.

Killed – Jeffrey Jones (Wichita, KS)

male

Wichita police arrest a teenager in connection to a robbery and deadly shooting at a southeast Wichita convenience store Sunday.

Emergency crews were called to the scene near Harry and Hydraulic just before 7:30 p.m. Sunday.

Police said 19-year-old Jackson Bryant walked into the gas station, demanding money from the clerk. A customer tried to intervene, and was shot during an argument.

Investigators said Bryant then left the store, and continued to fire shots while walking in the area. Several cars were hit, but no one else was hurt.

Officers arrested the man a few blocks away from the gas station. He was booked into the Sedgwick County Detention Center for first-degree murder and robbery.

The victim, Jeffery Michael Jones, 29, was taken to a nearby hospital where he later died from his injuries.

His mother tells KWCH Jones was severely autistic, and only had the mental capabilities of an 11-year old. She also said Jones went to the gas station often, and knew many of the people who worked there.

WICHITA, Kan. — The man convicted of killing a customer during the attempted robbery of a Wichita convenience store has been sentenced to prison.

In January, 20-year-old Jackson Bryant was convicted of second-degree murder in the death of 29-year-old Jeffrey Jones. Last November, Jones was one of several customers inside the B & D Convenience store near Harry and Hydraulic. He was shot in the face and pronounced dead at the scene.

In addition to murder, Bryant was also convicted of aggravated robbery, attempted aggravated robbery, criminal possession of a firearm and two misdemeanor counts of criminal damage to property.

Bryant was sentenced to 653 months for murder, 61 months for aggravated robbery, 34 months for attempted aggravated robbery, 9 months for criminal damage to property and 6 months each for the misdemeanors. The total amount of time is 63 years in prison, followed by another year in jail for the misdemeanors.

Her son, Jeffery Michael Jones, was 29-years-old. But he had brain damage and the mentality of an eleven-year-old.

“You can look at my son and you can tell that he is disabled and you can also tell that he don’t mean no harm to nobody,” she said.

Killed – Nicholas Simonitch (Kansas City, KS)

Nicholas Simonitch Loya1

Police are investigating an officer-involved shooting that left one man dead Saturday morning.

The incident unfolded about 7:20 a.m. Saturday in the area of 37th Street and Strong Avenue.

Flowers now mark the spot where 22-year-old Nicholas Simonitch died. Police said they fired after he lunged at them with a baseball bat.

Police said neighbors called them to the area because Simonitch was running around the neighborhood smashing out car windows with a baseball bat.

KANSAS CITY, Kan. – The family of the 22-year-old man, shot and killed by police Saturday as he aggressively swung a baseball bat, is now questioning the use of deadly force by the officers.

Nick Simonitch was bashing out car windows with a baseball bat when he was confronted by police. After one officer asked Simonitch to put down the bat, he acted as if he was doing so. As the officer took a step toward him he unexpectedly swung the bat again, just barely missing the officer. Police shot Simonitch dead within seconds of the attack.

Simonitch’s adoptive family has not disputed the reports of his actions on Saturday morning. They do insist, however, that it was not drugs or alcohol fueling his behavior, but rather attribute it to possible mental illness. His biological family has a history of Bipolar Disorder.

Double Murder – Killed – Melissa Bluml (Valley Center, KS)

Melissa Bluml1

Valley Center, Kan. — A decision on amended charges in a double shooting last month will be made after an autopsy.

Over the weekend, Roger Bluml, succumbed to his injuries at a local hospital. Bluml, along with his wife Melissa, were found shot in the couple’s Valley Center home on November 15.

Dan Dillon, spokesman for District Attorney Marc Bennett, confirmed to KAKE News Saturday that Bluml had passed away.

Melissa and Roger Bluml’s adopted son Tony is one of four people arrested in connection to the shooting. Also arrested were Kisha Schaberg, Tony Bluml’s biological mother, along with Andrew Ellington and Braden Smith.

Each has already been charged with first degree murder, attempted first degree murder, burglary, theft and two counts of aggravated robbery.

According to court documents, all four suspects are charged with forcefully stealing Melissa Bluml’s purse and hurting her in the process. They are also charged with forcefully stealing Roger Bluml’s car keys and phone. The four suspects are also charged with theft for stealing coins and property from the Bluml’s home, worth less than $1,000.

Mother and son each pleaded no contest to capital murder and two counts of aggravated robbery in the 2013 shooting deaths of Bluml’s adoptive parents, Roger and Melissa Bluml, as the Blumls sat in a truck outside their rural Valley Center home.

Schaberg and Anthony Bluml discussed killing the couple and then carried out their plan on Nov. 15, 2013, to get money, according to statements given in court Friday. Schaberg pulled the trigger.

Melissa Bluml, 53, died the following day. Her husband, 48, died about five weeks later.

During separate court hearings on Tuesday, a judge sentenced 36-year-old Kisha Schaberg and 20-year-old Anthony Bluml to life in prison without the possibility of parole for the 2013 murders of Melissa and Roger Bluml.

Triple Shooting – Killed – Paul Danny Khmabounheuang (Wichita, KS)

male

Prosecutors on Thursday charged a third suspect with first-degree felony murder in connection with the fatal shooting of an Arkansas man in Wichita last week.

Law enforcement records show that Corey Pollard Jr., 21, was arrested Thursday in the 700 block of Sylvan, more than a week after the Nov. 13 shooting death of Paul Danny Khmabounheuang inside the house at 1452 N. Holyoke. Pollard was one of four people wanted in the case, police have said. Two others – Orville Smith and Dijon Thomas – are also in custody.

Pollard, who appeared in court Thursday via television broadcast from the Sedgwick County Jail, faces the murder charge, as well as aggravated robbery and aggravated burglary charges. He was also charged Thursday with distribution of a controlled substance.

Pollard’s bond has been set at $500,000. He is due back in court Dec. 5 for a preliminary hearing and will receive counsel from a court-appointed attorney.

Officers were called to the area of 13th and Holyoke shortly before 1:30 Wednesday afternoon on the report of a disturbance. They found a 20-year-old man in the street suffering from a gunshot wound to the leg, who was transported to the hospital in serious condition.

While investigating that shooting, officers walking near 14th and Holyoke found a blood trail that led them to a home with an open door. Inside, they found another shooting victim who was pronounced dead at the scene.

A third shooting victim, a 19-year-old man, was found a short time later outside an apartment complex in the 4900 block of East Harry. That victim was transported to the hospital in serious condition with a gunshot wound to the stomach.

During Thursday’s police briefing, police said the shooting stemmed from a robbery attempt at a home in the 1400 block of North Holyoke. Police say two men went to the home to rob a 27-year-old man who was in town visiting his uncle.

Once inside, shots were exchanged between the four suspects and the intended target of the robbery. Two of the suspects were shot, and the 27-year-old was shot in the head and killed.

He’s been identified as Paul Danny Khmabounheuang of Arkansas, and had only been in town for a few days. His uncle’s friends own the home where the shooting happened, but were out of state.

The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/1EzQx6f) reports a Sedgwick County judge on Thursday ordered Dijon Thomas of Wichita to serve a 38-month sentence on an involuntary manslaughter conviction and 26 months for marijuana possession.

Thomas was one of four men charged in the death of Paul Danny Khmabounheuang, who was visiting relatives when a shootout occurred during a robbery at a house in November 2013.

The other men convicted in the killing are Corey Pollard, Dallas Guy and Orville Smith.

Police were dispatched to a shooting at an apartment building in the 1800 block of North Broadway shortly after midnight Wednesday morning. They found a victim with a gunshot wound to the head, who was transported to a local hospital where he later died.

Police identified him as 23-year-old Erick F. Salazar.

Officers have since arrested a 23-year-old man. Police say the two men had been arguing over a small amount of money when the shooting occurred.

Police are now looking for a second suspect, believed to be a 38-year-old man.

Officers arrested Manuel Rivas, 23, shortly after the shooting. Police believe he may be connected to Salazar’s death. Rivas is being held in the Sedgwick County Detention Center on first-degree murder charges. He is expected to make a first appearance in court Friday.

Killed – Margaret Hopkins (Lawrence, KS)

Margaret Hopkins

A 67-year-old Lawrence man facing a first-degree murder charge for an alleged mercy killing of his wife entered a not guilty plea on Friday.

Larry Hopkins is charged with first-degree murder for fatally shooting his wife Margaret Hopkins on November 5. His charge is described as unlawfully and feloniously killing a human being, intentionally and with premeditation.

Lawrence Police Officers responded to a 911 call reporting a shooting inside a home in the 1600 block of West 2nd Terrace around 8:45 a.m.

Larry Hopkins told a judge Thursday that less than two weeks short of their 24th wedding anniversary he gave his ailing wife a final gift.

“I gave Margaret the last gift I could: I didn’t let her wake up,” Hopkins said of the Nov. 5, 2013, shooting of his wife, Margaret Hopkins, in their north-central Lawrence home. “I will not try to deny that I pulled the trigger, or that I made the decision not to let Margaret wake up.”

Hopkins, 67, read a four-page written statement on Thursday before District Judge Michael Malone sentenced him to life in prison without the possibility of parole for 25 years.

Before reading Hopkins’ sentence, Malone said that the law required that he impose a life sentence without parole eligibility for 25 years. “I wish you well, sir,” Malone said.

Hopkins said his wife suffered from Type-2 diabetes before enduring multiple strokes, knee replacement surgeries and countless falls — one of which shattered her left femur. “She went from being an independent geriatric social worker to Social Security Disability and a wheelchair and walker,” Hopkins said.

Hopkins said he suffered a stroke of his own after retiring from the Spencer Research Library in 2009. After rehab, calls to 911 replaced the care Hopkins once provided whenever Margaret fell. Once he regained enough strength, he said, he began asking neighbors for help. But around 2010, Hopkins underwent quadruple bypass surgery and, by 2013, Margaret’s condition had deteriorated further. Hopkins said his wife needed help getting in and out of bed and the shower and that he was too weak to help her much of the time.

Calm throughout much of his statement, Hopkins’ voice rose as he neared the end. “I will maintain until my dying day that Medicare killed my wife!” he said, slamming his paper down. Hopkins claimed Medicare would not cover a place for Margaret to stay after she was released from the hospital.

But District Attorney Charles Branson said Thursday that days before the shooting, a health care official was at their home to discuss housing options. Branson said Hopkins told investigators that he “didn’t want to sell off everything he owned and go someplace to die.”

“This did not have to be the final solution,” Branson said.

Killed – Kevin Welsh (Eureka, KS)

Kevin Welsh1

GREENWOOD COUNTY, Kansas – Authorities continue to search for a suspect in a murder near Eureka.

They believe Kevin Robert Welsh shot his 26-year-old ex-girlfriend, her 52-year-old mother and her 54-year-old stepfather.

It happened around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in the 1500 block of 130th near Eureka after a burglary.

When deputies arrived, they found the bodies of the older man and woman.

The younger woman who was shot had tried to go for help in a car but crashed. She is in critical condition in a Wichita hospital.

Two of the victims died. Friends tell us they were 54-year-old Keith Kriesel and 52-year-old Sheila Kriesel. The two were married and were the mother and step father of 26-year-old Catherine Scheff.

Scheff remains in the hospital. According to the Eureka Herald, Scheff is in stable condition. The newspaper reports she was shot several times and also suffered injuries from a car crash.

Friends tell us Scheff and Welsh have children together.

Welsh, 35, had disappeared after becoming a suspect in the Oct. 2 fatal shooting of a Eureka couple and the wounding of their 26-year-old daughter.

Life here went on that way for two weeks, until Wednesday night, when Kevin Welsh was shot and killed by KBI agents in a shed a few blocks west of Main Street after an extensive manhunt.

Many in Eureka knew Welsh. Jerry Provence got in a couple of fights with him in high school. Provence said Welsh didn’t like that he had come to town from the big city, Wichita.

KBI agents investigated the shed, near 8th and Poplar, after a passing law enforcement officer noticed the entrance to the unoccupied structure had been altered, KBI spokesman Kyle Smith said in a statement. The owner of the building gave permission for the agents to search the building.

Agents encountered Welsh inside. He pointed a handgun at them, and they responded by shooting him, Smith said. The agents provided first aid, then took Welsh to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly after 10 p.m. Wednesday.

Triple Shooting – Wounded – Woman (Eureka, KS)

female

GREENWOOD COUNTY, Kansas – Authorities continue to search for a suspect in a murder near Eureka.

They believe Kevin Robert Welsh shot his 26-year-old ex-girlfriend, her 52-year-old mother and her 54-year-old stepfather.

It happened around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in the 1500 block of 130th near Eureka after a burglary.

When deputies arrived, they found the bodies of the older man and woman.

The younger woman who was shot had tried to go for help in a car but crashed. She is in critical condition in a Wichita hospital.

Two of the victims died. Friends tell us they were 54-year-old Keith Kriesel and 52-year-old Sheila Kriesel. The two were married and were the mother and step father of 26-year-old Catherine Scheff.

Scheff remains in the hospital. According to the Eureka Herald, Scheff is in stable condition. The newspaper reports she was shot several times and also suffered injuries from a car crash.

Friends tell us Scheff and Welsh have children together.

Welsh, 35, had disappeared after becoming a suspect in the Oct. 2 fatal shooting of a Eureka couple and the wounding of their 26-year-old daughter.

Life here went on that way for two weeks, until Wednesday night, when Kevin Welsh was shot and killed by KBI agents in a shed a few blocks west of Main Street after an extensive manhunt.

Many in Eureka knew Welsh. Jerry Provence got in a couple of fights with him in high school. Provence said Welsh didn’t like that he had come to town from the big city, Wichita.

KBI agents investigated the shed, near 8th and Poplar, after a passing law enforcement officer noticed the entrance to the unoccupied structure had been altered, KBI spokesman Kyle Smith said in a statement. The owner of the building gave permission for the agents to search the building.

Agents encountered Welsh inside. He pointed a handgun at them, and they responded by shooting him, Smith said. The agents provided first aid, then took Welsh to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly after 10 p.m. Wednesday.

EWS RELEASE ISSUED OCTOBER 17, 2013 BY THE KANSAS BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION

Last night at approximately 9:30 p.m., as part of an extensive manhunt for Kevin Welsh, wanted for two counts of 1st degree murder and attempted 1stdegree murder, agents of the Kansas Bureau of Investigation were investigating a building near 8th and Poplar in Eureka, Kansas. A passing law enforcement officer had noticed the entrance to the unoccupied structure was tampered with from the last time it had been checked. Agents contacted the owner of the building and obtained consent to conduct a search.

Initial information indicates KBI Agents clearing the building encountered Welsh, who pointed a handgun at the agents, causing the agents to engage with lethal force. Welsh was shot by the agents, provided first aide and then transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead shortly after 10:00 p.m.

Sheriff Bitler said the woman was the ex-girlfriend of shooting suspect, 35-year-old Kevin Robert Welsh of Toronto, Kansas. He says the shooting was domestic violence-related.

Mass Shooting – Wounded – Man (Wichita, KS)

male

Wichita Police have new information on a deadly shooting that happened in Old Town early Sunday morning.

Police say the shooting happened outside of a night club in the 100 block of North Mead around 2 a.m. Sunday.

At this point, officers believe it may have started as an argument between two people, and that one of them pulled out a gun and began firing into a crowd of hundreds. Officers initially found three victims, then three more down the street. The seventh showed up at a hospital later.

During a briefing Monday morning, police identified the victim who died as 25-year-old Kolby B. Hopkins of Wichita. He suffered a single gunshot wound to the head.

The others who were shot were all men, ages 25, 27, 28, 35 and 2 26-year-olds.

Susan L. May will stand trial for the murder of her brother, Richard Hrejsa. She is charged with first degree murder and accused of shooting Hrejsa with the intention to kill him.

A Butler County judge determined there is enough evidence to hold May for trial after today’s preliminary hearing.

Murder charges were filed last month in connection to a body that was found in the backyard of Susan May’s house near Augusta.

May’s daughter, Nicole May, testified in court alleging her mother shot and killed Hrejsa on September 18th. Nicole May said she was at her mother’s house to confront Hrejsa with an eviction notice, when he became angry.

POSTED: 01:45 PM CDT Oct 16, 2013 UPDATED: 06:28 PM CDT Oct 16, 2013
Susan May made her first appearance in a Butler County courtroom Wednesday afternoon. Prosecutors said May intentionally shot Richard Hrejsa sometime around September 18th and left his body on her property. His decomposing body was found Monday evening after authorities were called to May’s home for a welfare check.

Killed – Keith Ancell (Lincoln, KS)

Keith Ancell

The shooting happened near the intersection of 4th and School Street in the town of Lincoln at about 2 a.m. Monday morning.

The Kansas Bureau of Investigation is handling the case.

The victim has been identified as 21-year-old Keith Ancell of Sylvan Grove. An autopsy will be conducted Tuesday but the coroner, Dr. Roger Warren, says it appears that Ancell died from a gunshot wound to the center of his chest just below his neck.

LINCOLN — Scott Weigel was sentenced Monday in Lincoln County District Court to nine years and nine months in prison for the Sept. 9, 2013, shooting death of Keith Ancell, 21, in Lincoln.

Weigel, 34, the son of Lincoln County Sheriff Mike Weigel, will receive credit for the 490 days he’s served in jail since the shooting, said Lincoln County Attorney Jennifer O’Hare. With good behavior, Weigel could receive a 15 percent reduction in his sentence, O’Hare said.

Weigel was convicted by a jury on Nov. 20 of second-degree murder, “unintentionally, but recklessly, killing Keith Ancell, under circumstances that show extreme indifference to the value of human life.”

Prior to sentencing, Weigel read a brief statement calling Keith Ancell his best friend and apologizing to Ancell’s family and his own.

KANSAS CITY, Kan. — One woman is dead after an early morning shooting on Wednesday. Police said the shooting took place in a house in the 1900 block of N. 15th Street in Kansas City, Kan.

The victim, a woman in her 20s, was inside the house with others when shots rang out around 2:15 a.m. The suspected gunman left before police arrived.

Family and friends of the victim told FOX 4’s Matt Stewart at the scene that the woman was shot and killed by her boyfriend. They said the suspect was the father of the victim’s son and that they had a troubled relationship.

A man charged with killing his ex-girlfriend in Kansas has been arrested in Detroit.

The Kansas City Star reports that 24-year Lee Edward Williams is expected to appear before a Michigan judge Monday to determine if he will fight extradition.

He is charged in Wyandotte County District Court in Kansas with first-degree murder in the Sept. 4 shooting death of 20-year-old Ty’Shai Carvin. He is also charged with illegally possessing a firearm.

Authorities also have filed a motion seeking to revoke his probation in a drug distribution case.

Family members said that Williams and Carvin had dated, but she was trying to break off the relationship. Carvin was the mother of a 2-year-old boy.

Killed – Daniel DeLong (Topeka, KS)

male

Shawnee County District Attorney Chad Taylor announced that his office has completed a review of the investigation conducted by the Shawnee County Sheriff’s Office, of the Topeka Police Officer involved shooting which resulted in the death of Daniel DeLong on July 29, 2013.

In a news release, DA Taylor says the Topeka Police Officer’s use of force was justified as both self defense and defense of others under Kansas law.

The Shawnee County Sheriff’s Office has released the name of the man shot by a Topeka Police Officer.

According to a news release, Daniel E. DeLong, 56, of Topeka, has been identified as the person involved in the incident at the Knightsbridge Manor Apartments on July 29th, 2013.

A Topeka Police Officer fired their duty weapon, striking DeLong, after DeLong charged officers with a knife.  DeLong was pronounced dead at the scene as a result of his wounds.

Police confirm that the man who was shot by a police officer was killed in the incident.

Topeka Police Chief Ron Miller said three officers were on the scene at 9:34 a.m. to check on the welfare of a man who lived in the apartment. The manager of the complex reported to officers that the man was aggressive and combative.

Miller said the officers went to the apartment on the second floor of the complex and began to talk to the man through his front door.

“He communicated with the officers that he wanted them to go away,” Miller said. “There was a problem with this individual, and eventually, the man opened the door and ran out, carrying a knife.

“The officers, and the people on the scene from the apartment complex, retreated down the hall and the subject chased them down the hall with the knife and one officer fired multiple shots, striking the subject, and he fell to the floor in the hallway.”

The officers provided medical assistance, but the man was pronounced dead at the scene.
