    The Ugly: Wichita Kansas: Sedgwick County Sheriff Deputy shot

    Monday, September 28, 2009

    Officers investigating the shooting of a sheriff's deputy have been involved in a foot chase, and reports are the person being chased has been shot. The chase was in a field not far from the scene where the deputy was shot.

    The Sedgwick County Sheriff said a deputy who suffered a gunshot wound in the 3600 block of S. Rock Rd is expected to survive. The shooting location is near McConnell Air Force Base.

    Sheriff Bob Hinshaw said the deputy was responding to a larceny when he was shot. Hinshaw said the deputy is out of surgery and is in stable condition. Hinshaw said the deputy was shot twice, in the torso and in the leg.

    Authorities believe the suspect is in a nearby house in the 3600 block of South Rock Road. It is believed he has the deputy's pistol. Sheriff Hinshaw said officers have not made contact with the suspect. Scanner traffic indicates authorities are using a robot to gain access to the house.

    Sheriff Hinshaw said the suspect is believed to be in his 20s and was recently paroled. Hinshaw said the shooting could possibly have been a setup.

    The deputy is 26-years-old and has been on the force for a year and a half. Sheriff Hinshaw said this is his first assignment in law enforcement.

    Rock Road is closed from McConnell Air Force Base to 47th Street South.

    Wineteer Elementary has been placed on lockdown. Other Derby school students who live in the cordoned-off area are being dropped off at Wineteer, and parents will have to come to the school to pick up those students.

    Heritage College in the 2800 block of South Rock Road has canceled afternoon and evening classes.

    Sheriff's deputy, suspect dead of gunshot wounds | Featured Story | Wichita Eagle


    it's also been said by news media, that a 30-30 was used to shoot the Deputy, and penetrated his vest. The news media has had some info wrong, so we'lll see if that is verified as more facts are known. Either way, it all appears it was a "set up" to shoot an officer, and not any particular officer.

    There was Hwy Patrol cars, City detectives, Sheriff's officers, etc. all running red lights & sirens..... at high speed this a.m. I told my daughter, the "ONLY" time I've seen all agencies respond at the same time, at those speeds, and detectives running for their cars and taking off like they did.... was when there was either an "officer down" call, or a "officer in real deep s...t" call. It is sad that it turned out, that's exactly what it was.

    The cops handled that extremely well, and saved a lot of taxpayer dollars, too.

    Just goes to show you what a good upbringing can do for a fine pair of "upstanding individuals'

    "To my mind it is wholly irresponsible to go into the world incapable of preventing violence, injury, crime, and death. How feeble is the mindset to accept defenselessness. How unnatural. How cheap. How cowardly. How pathetic." Ted Nugent
    I would rather die with good men than hide with cowards
    If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.
    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it whether it exists or not, diagnosing it incorrectly, and applying the wrong remedy."
