UPDATE: Fort Riley Man Killed by Police

Associated Press - August 8, 2017 3:08 pm

The Kansas Bureau of Investigation says a 23-year-old man was shot and killed by officers after refusing their commands to drop two handguns he possessed outside a store in Junction City.

The KBI, in a news release, didn’t immediately identify the suspect who died at the scene of the shooting shortly before 1 a.m. Tuesday, saying only that he was from Fort Riley.

The KBI says Junction City officers were responding to a requested welfare check at a home when another caller reported an armed disturbance blocks away outside a store. Local police and Geary County deputies responded to that later call and found a man armed with two handguns on the sidewalk before “the confrontation escalated further,” and four law enforcers fired at the man.

Mr. Alexander asks a question and offers an opinion. Mr. Hljionw responds by applying for a spokesman position in the Trump administration; demonstrating his command of name calling and profanity.

My exposure to military service seems to be the part that Mr. Hljionw missed. That of learning to and being expected to act like an officer and a gentleman. I have chosen my lane and others have chosen theirs.
