MCPHERSON — One man is dead after being shot during a physical altercation with two Kansas sheriff’s deputies who were trying to serve an arrest warrant.
Kansas Bureau of Investigation spokesman Mark Malik says the man, whose name was not released, physically resisted being arrested at 3 p.m. Thursday before being shot with a Taser without success.
Malik says the man repeatedly struck one of the deputies, attacked a second deputy who ordered him to stop, and then resumed striking the first deputy.
The second deputy shot the man, who was pronounced dead at McPherson Memorial Hospital.
Malik says the incident was captured on video and is being reviewed by KBI investigators. He says no additional information will be available until the investigation is complete.
