Court documents detail fatal officer shooting

KSAL StaffSeptember 20, 2014

Court documents show a 30-year-old Kansas man accused of fatally shooting a Topeka police officer earlier this month told investigators he had used methamphetamine two hours before the incident.

Ross Preston Lane is charged with capital murder in the Sept. 7 shooting death of 40-year-old police Cpl. Jason Harwood during a routine traffic stop in Topeka.

According to affidavits filed Sept. 8 and obtained Friday through an open-records request, Lane told a passenger in the car that he didn’t want to go back to prison, before pulling a gun from between the front seats and shooting Harwood.

Lane was taken into custody several hours later after calling a Topeka television station and saying he wanted to give up. He is being held without bond.
