Man Who Dragged Officer Shot, Killed

KSAL StaffAugust 23, 2015

Wichita police say an officer fatally shot a man after the officer was dragged by a vehicle following a traffic stop.

Police spokesman Lt. James Espinoza says officers stopped a car around 10 p.m. Saturday and one officer approached the vehicle. There was a struggle and the man drove away, dragging the officer.

The man hit another vehicle head-on, injuring two people.

Espinoza said the officer at some point fired shots at the driver who was dragging him, but did not say how many shots were fired.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene and the officer is in serious condition at a hospital. Their identities have not been released.

The department is investigating the incident.
