Police fatally shoot man at Salina home, grandmother found slain


SALINA, Kan. (KSNW) – Authorities have identified a man who was fatally shot by police at a Salina home where his step-grandmother was stabbed to death. It happened Wednesday in the 2000 block of Harold Avenue.

The Kansas Bureau of Investigation says 28-year-old Jeremy Connolly was killed Wednesday after a 911 caller reported that someone was injured or dead inside a Salina home. Officers found blood on the porch and 71-year-old Linda Kromer stabbed to death on the first floor of the home.

The KBI says Connolly was barricaded inside a basement bedroom. The KBI says he refused repeated commands to drop a knife, and when he advanced toward officers with the knife, two Salina police officers shot him.

He died at a hospital. No officers were hurt. The KBI is investigating the shooting.
