ELLSWORTH — Authorities are investigating after a law enforcement officer was involved in a shooting in central Kansas.
KWCH-TV reports that a Kansas Highway Patrol dispatcher says the shooting happened Thursday night along Kansas 156 between the towns of Holyrood and Ellsworth. No details were provided on who was wounded or the extent of that person’s injuries.
The patrol didn’t immediately return a phone message from The Associated Press.
Ellsworth County Sheriff Tracy Ploutz declined to provide details Friday morning to the AP. He referred questions to the county prosecutor, whose phone rang unanswered early Friday.
The Ellsworth Police Department said on its Facebook page that all its officers are “okay” and expressed thanks for the “thoughts and prayers for everyone involved.”
