KBI Probes Fatal Officer-Involved Shooting

MEDICINE LODGE, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas Bureau of Investigation says it is probing the death of a 24-year-old man during a shootout with police in Medicine Lodge. The KBI said in a statement Monday that Gary Leon Herd Jr. was fatally shot about 5 pm Sunday by a Medicine Lodge officer while a search warrant was being served. The KBI says an officer fired at Herd when he confronted the armed man in a bedroom, and that the two exchanged gunfire. Herd died at the scene. No officers were injured. The KBI says it will do a "thorough and independent investigation" and turn over its findings to Barber County prosecutors for review.
