Dodge City police say two people were shot to death at separate locations before the suspected gunman shot and wounded himself.
Police say officers responding to a shooting Sunday in a hardware store parking lot found an adult male gunshot victim, who was taken to a hospital, where he later died.
Officers responded a short time later to a report of man abducting a woman from another store at gunpoint.
Police located the suspect’s vehicle and found the suspect and the kidnapping victim inside. Police say as officers tried to make contact with the occupants, the subject shot the woman and then turned the gun on himself.
The woman was transported to a hospital, where she died.
The suspect is in critical condition.
