Man Shot During Standoff

Associated Press - August 6, 2015 5:08 am

A 19-year-old man has been sentenced to probation for growing psychedelic mushrooms at a Hutchinson business.

A Hutchinson man has been shot by police after authorities say he fired at officers with a shotgun during a standoff.

According to Hutchinson police Capt. Troy Hoover, officers were dispatched to a house early Wednesday. A man reported to police that his 23-year-old son was threatening him.

Hoover said police searched the home and when the man opened the garage door for them to enter, his son was standing there with a shotgun pointed at officers. Officers retreated and standoff began, lasting almost four hours.

Police said the suspect shot at them through a hole in the garage door. An officer returned fire, striking the man in the hand. The man surrendered and he was taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries that are not life-threatening.

No police officers were injured. An investigation is ongoing.
