The Kansas Bureau of Investigation wraps up its look at a shooting incident between Salina Police and a man who was wounded after firing at officers last week.
According to Police Captain Mike Sweeney, Detective Scott Hogeland, and Master Patrol Officers Mike Miller and Gary Hanus were all exonerated in a May 21st shooting near Centennial Park.
Last Wednesday – Miller and Hanus were interviewing a woman near her home after she reported a domestic dispute with her boyfriend.
Moments later Detective Scott Hogeland arrived as backup, and 45-year-old Jose Carrillo walked toward the group with a rifle and opened fire.
Detective Hogeland returned fire and hit Carrillo twice.
Police Chief Brad Nelson told reporters on Thursday, “All officers performed heroically during this traumatic event, and I’m grateful that their training and experience resulted in this outcome.”
Detective Scott Hogeland is back on duty after being placed on administrative leave per department policy.
Carrillo was treated for non life threatening wounds at Salina Regional Health Center and was booked into the Saline County Jail on three counts of attempted first degree murder.
