Trooper Shoots Machete-Wielding Man

KSAL StaffSeptember 16, 2016

The Kansas Highway Patrol says a trooper shot a man who was armed with a machete in northwest Kansas.

The patrol was notified early Friday that a man standing near a vehicle on Interstate 70 in Sherman County was armed with a baseball bat or machete.

A trooper found a vehicle stopped in the middle of the road about two miles east of Edson. The patrol says in a news release that the man, armed with a machete, rushed the trooper. When the man ignored commands to drop the machete, the trooper shot the suspect.

The subject was taken to Goodland hospital and then was flown to a Denver hospital. His condition was not immediately available.

The Kansas Bureau of Investigation is the shooting.
