US Marshal for Kansas: Resources Available for Law Officers

A public funeral is planned for Saturday for the fallen KCK detective

Kansas City, Kansas Police Detective Brad Lancaster died at a hospital Monday about three hours after being shot while answering a report of a suspicious person near the Kansas Speedway. 28-year-old Curtis Ayers, of Tonganoxie, Kansas, was charged in Wyandotte County today (WED) in connection with Lancaster's death. Ayers was captured after a chase across the state line into Missouri and was wounded in a shoot-out with police. Ron Miller, the U.S. Marshal for the District of Kansas, says resources are available to help officers cope with the dangers of the job and with the loss of a fellow officer.

Detective Brad Lancaster was a U.S. Air Force veteran who had served two tours of duty overseas and had been with the KCK Police Department for nine years. Lancaster will be honored with a public funeral at 11 am Saturday at Children's Mercy Park, home of the Sporting Kansas City soccer team in Kansas City, Kansas.  A visitation is scheduled at 4 pm Friday at Trinity Community Church in Kansas City, Kansas.
