SABETHA (KSNT) – The Kansas Bureau of Investigation has confirmed there was an officer-involved shooting in Sabetha Wednesday around 10 p.m. after police responded to a call of a man threatening suicide.

According to the KBI, officers from the Sabetha Police Department and deputies from the Nemaha County Sheriff’s Office were called to the 300 block of N. 9th St. in Sabetha, at approximately 7:45 p.m.

A KBI spokesperson says that around 9:45 p.m., Kelly Hall, 38, was shot while police were at the scene. He was taken to a local hospital and then transferred to Stormont Vail in Topeka. His condition has not been released.

During the incident, officers heard several pops coming from inside the house. After multiple attempts to communicate with Hall to make sure he was okay, he exited the home holding an air-powered nail gun.

Hall then began firing nails at the officers. An officer from the Sabetha Police Department shot Hall, and he retreated back to the residence where the officers applied first aid before EMS arrived.

A neighbor said the standoff began between 7 and 7:30 p.m. The neighbor said police officers asked them to turn their lights off but eventually asked them to leave their homes because it was not safe.

Hall was released from Stormont Vail Hospital and booked into the Nemaha County Jail.

No law enforcement officers were injured. The KBI is investigating.
