BARTON COUNTY, Kan. (KSNW) — Authorities have made an arrest in last week’s shooting death of a man in Hoisington. The suspect is someone they had already booked for other reasons shortly after the homicide.
The Kansas Bureau of Investigation said the suspect is Adam Sullivan, 32, of Hoisington. Investigators say he is now booked on suspicion of involuntary manslaughter. Last week, he was booked on suspicion of possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
