Authorities say an officer has shot and killed a central Kansas man after he refused to drop a gun.
The Kansas Bureau of Investigation says in a news release that 50-year-old Robb Stewart was killed Tuesday night after officers responded to a domestic situation in the small town of Lehigh. The release says responding officers saw Stewart move from his home to a large outbuilding.
Officers from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, the Marion Police Department and the Hillsboro Police Department then surrounded the outbuilding. The release says Stewart emerged from the building about 15 minutes later and was shot after not dropping his firearm as ordered. He died at the scene.
No officers were injured, although one was transported to a hospital as a precaution. The KBI is investigating.
