Man Killed In Shootout With Officers

Associated Press - July 20, 2015 11:54 am

A western Kansas man killed in a shootout with law enforcement officers over the weekend has been identified as a 65-year-old Colby resident.

Kansas Bureau of Investigation spokesman Mark Malick says Charles Edward Dewey was gone when Colby police responded late Friday night to a domestic disturbance involving someone with a gun.

Police and Thomas County sheriff’s deputies found Dewey just after midnight Saturday morning hiding under a camper trailer. Malick says Dewey fired a handgun at the officers, who returned fire and killed him.

No law enforcement officers were injured in the exchange. Two Colby police officers and one deputy who were involved in the shooting were placed on administrative leave.
