WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Authorities say a Kansas sheriff’s deputy has been shot and killed while responding to a call about a suspicious person.
The Wichita Eagle reports that Sedgwick County Sheriff Jeff Easter said Deputy Robert Kunze was shot Sunday about 20 miles west of downtown Wichita after arriving at the scene and seeing a person who matched the description of the suspicious individual. The sheriff’s office said Kunze activated the emergency button on his portable radio shortly before 2 p.m.
Easter said another deputy responded and found Kunze on the ground along with the suspect, whose name wasn’t released. The deputy was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead just before 3 p.m.
