SALINA, Kan. (AP) One man has been killed and a Salina police officer is hospitalized after a shooting at a home.
Police Chief Jim Hill says officers went to the home late Thursday on a report of a man with a gun. The Salina Journal reports when police arrived and weren’t able to contact the suspect, five officers entered the house early Friday, announcing their presence.
Hill says the suspect, Marijon Gadson, 19, responded by firing multiple shots, striking Officer Charleton Huen in the face. Hill said police then returned fire, retrieved Huen and called for an ambulance.
Police re-entered the house around 6 a.m. Friday and found Gadson dead in the basement. The cause of his death wasn’t immediately clear.
Huen was taken to a hospital in Oklahoma.
