EUREKA, Kansas - New details were released Thursday afternoon about the shooting that left murder suspect Kevin Welsh dead.
Greenwood County Sheriff Rusty Bitler confirmed that officers had an armed confrontation with the suspect Wednesday night. Welsh was pronounced dead later at the hospital in Eureka.
Bitler says over the last week this manhunt has included 15 agencies, and they've checked more than 100 different locations including caves, houses and barns.
The county attorney says a special prosecutor will be appointed to handle what remains of this case.
Kevin Welsh’s two week run from police came to an end on Wednesday night.
The 35-year-old murder suspect was shot by the KBI near 8th and Poplar.
A passing officer had noticed the entrance to an unoccupied structure was tampered with from the last time it was checked.
Eureka residents say the whole ordeal has been hard on the community, and that they didn’t think Welsh would stick around following the shooting.
“I am surprised he stuck around town,” says Mike Mefford. “I mean it doesn’t seem like something someone would do following something like this.”
Meanwhile, Catherine Scheff remains in the hospital, and her neighbors say her health continues to be the main concern.
Neighbor Patsy Frazier says, “She’s never done anything bad to anybody. I love her to death. My kids love her to death. My youngest, she’s devastated over the whole ordeal.
