Reports of Shots Fired in Manhattan



Still no details, but Riley County Police responded to the 24-hundred block of Charlois Lane on the northeast side of Manhattan early Tuesday morning.  The incident was called in at 6:42 this morning and there were reportedly shots fired.

Police had nothing further to announce at their daily news briefing Tuesday.


Details were since released regarding this incident.

Earl Billot (38) was the individual who originally reported the shots to Riley County Police.  The shots were fired  in his home and his fiance was injured.  Upon arrival, police found Kendra Billam (48) deceased from a self inflicted gunshot wound.

Billam was a former science teacher at Manhattan High School for 17 years and started with USD 383 in 1989 as an aide.

An autopsy was requested, which RCPD Captain Tim Hegarty says is “fairly standard for suicides”.
