RICE COUNTY – The Kansas Bureau of Investigation (KBI) responded to investigate an officer-involved shooting that critically injured a Lyons police officer.
Preliminary information indicates that officers from the Lyons Police Department received a 911 call at approximately 3:40 p.m. from a man who was being threatened with a gun.
When the first responding officer arrived at 1 Arrowhead Dr. in Lyons, Kan., he was shot by 40-year-old Adam Hrabik, who lived at the residence. Two nearby citizens who saw the shooting helped coax the officer away from the scene. They then drove him to a local hospital in their private vehicle. The officer was then transported to a Wichita hospital where he is currently in critical condition.
When additional officers and deputies arrived on scene, they discovered a 56-year-old Lyons man outside who had also been shot. They removed the man from the scene. He was taken to a local hospital and then transported to a Wichita hospital. He is currently in serious condition.
Numerous law enforcement agencies responded to Lyons to assist. Hrabik retreated into the residence and a standoff ensued. At approximately 7:10 p.m., the Kansas Highway Patrol’s Special Response Team negotiated him out of the residence, and the Hutchinson and Reno County Emergency Response Team took Hrabik into custody.
Hrabik was turned over to KBI agents for questioning. The investigation is ongoing.
