Police: Man Shot by Police Was Threatening Woman

KSAL StaffAugust 21, 2014

Haysville police say a man was holding a bleeding woman at knife point before an officer shot him to death.

Police Chief Jeff Whitfield said in a statement Thursday that officers found 40-year-old Chad Leichhardt holding the woman at a Haysville apartment on Tuesday. One officer shot Leichhardt after he refused commands to drop the knife and continued to threaten the woman, who was bleeding from several cuts.

The woman was treated and released at a hospital.

The Wichita Eagle reports state prison records show Leichhardt was released from parole last Thursday after being jailed on a theft conviction. He also had several other convictions in Sumner and Sedgwick counties and escaped from work release for a few days last October while at the Hutchinson Correctional Facility.
