Suicidal man killed by Wichita police officer

Associated Press - July 4, 2014 7:10 pm

A man is dead after being shot by police who were called to a Wichita home in response to a suicidal man who needed help.

When officers arrived at the home around 1:30 p.m. Friday the man, believed to be in his 20s, ran out of the house toward officers with a weapon.

Wichita Deputy Police Chief Nelson Mosley says an officer tried to subdue the man with a stun gun, but when that didn’t work the officer fired at him.

The man was taken to a local hospital where he died at 2 p.m. Friday.

The officers involved in the shooting have been placed on paid administrative leave while the incident is being investigated.
