SALINA, Kan. – A car stop on Oct. 9 turned into an officer-involved shooting in Salina, Kansas.

Kansas Bureau of Investigation (KBI) agents were attempting to locate a suspect with warrants connected to a case. KBI requested assistance from Kansas Highway Patrol (KHP) in locating the suspect.

Around 3:55 p.m., KBI and KHP initiated a car stop near Choctaw and Cherokee in Salina. Officials say the driver stopped, but as officers approached, occupants in the car opened gunfire.

Two KBI agents and a KHP trooper returned gunfire, hitting two men.

Life saving measures were attempted at the scene. Both subjects were transported to area hospitals with critical injuries. No agents or troopers were injured in the incident.

The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the incident.

As is standard practice, and in accordance with Kansas Highway Patrol policy, the trooper involved was placed on administrative leave while this case is under investigation. Also, per KBI policy, the agents will be placed on administrative leave.

Anyone with information related to this case is encouraged to contact the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office.
