Sheriff: Homeowner Shot Man During Haysville Break-In

Associated Press - January 8, 2015 1:08 pm

Sedgwick County authorities say a homeowner shot and killed a man who was trying to break into his home in Haysville.

Sheriff’s Capt. Greg Pollock said Wednesday the homeowner shot 27-year-old Cody Don Reid on Dec. 29. Pollock says authorities have no current plans to arrest the 57-year-old homeowner. Prosecutors will decide whether charges will be filed.

Authorities still think that Reid was trying to break in when the homeowner shot him.

A week ago, Pollock said Reid had been shot by someone other than the male resident or female companion who were at the home.

The Wichita Eagle reports investigators now think the homeowner fired two shots and one hit Reid.

Whatever happened to honest information given to the public from law enforcement? It seems time and again you cannot trust what is being told or its a cover up. Saline county sheriff’s office seems to be the worst. The sheriff here covers everything up then turns it over to the KBI who also helps with the cover up and then life goes on. There needs to be a group of average citizens that investigate shootings and complaints on how law enforcement operates. Now we have a case in Saline County where 2 deputies spend 2 hours to check up on a child who was asleep in bed and the father of which also was asleep. Further now it has come to light that the person who was gunned down had no weapon but a cell phone in his hand. It is just unbelievable.
