Shooting Suspect Search Enters Third Day

KSAL StaffSeptember 4, 2013

Butler County’s sheriff has sent detectives to southwest Kansas in search of a man suspected of shooting one of his deputies.

The search for 41-year-old Jan Tracy Kilbourne has entered its third day since he exchanged gunfire with a Butler County deputy around 5:15 a.m. Monday.

A bullet hit the deputy in the shoulder but most of the impact was stopped by the bulletproof vest he was wearing. The deputy returned fire and wounded the suspect, who ran off and prompted a massive search Monday both on the ground and in the air.

Butler County Sheriff Kelly Herzet says he has sent detectives to the Liberal-Hugoton area in southwest Kansas and to Hutchison in search of Kilbourne.

Herzet says the deputy is recovering at home.
