CIMARRON, Kan. (KSNW) – Authorities say a man suspected of shooting and wounding a Kansas sheriff’s deputy has been discovered dead inside the home after a standoff.
The Kansas Bureau of Investigation said Sunday that Gray County sheriffs’ deputies entered the home in the 600 block of East Avenue A Saturday after becoming concerned for the safety of the 49-year-old homeowner, Kevin Trahern when responding to a domestic disturbance call.
Trahern fired shots through the basement door, striking a deputy in his legs and foot. A standoff ensued. The deputy has been released from the hospital.
Law enforcement officers entered the residence Saturday and found Trahern dead inside from what is believed to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
