Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback says preliminary information indicates Hesston Police Chief Doug Schroeder is the one who shot and killed the gunman suspected of killing three people at a factory.

Brownback told reporters Friday that Schroeder apparently shot and killed Cedric Ford in the Excel Industries building Thursday evening.

The governor says Schroeder didn’t wait for backup and “seized the situation.” He says “without his aggressive response,” more people would have been at risk.

According to Schroeder’s LinkedIn page, he’s been chief of Hesston since 1998.
