Leavenworth Shooting Leaves Two Dead

LANSING, Kan. (AP) — Authorities in northeastern Kansas have identified the man who opened fire in a murder-suicide as a 32-year-old Leavenworth resident.  The shootings occurred around 8:30 p.m. Wednesday outside Lansing, in rural Leavenworth County.  Undersheriff Ron Cranor said today (THUR) that Kenneth McClellan forced his way into the home of 66-year-old John O'Brien Jr., with whose daughter he had an estranged relationship. The undersheriff said McClellan shot and killed O'Brien, then left through a back door and fatally shot himself.  The Kansas City Star reports that authorities initially thought O'Brien's daughter had also been shot, but doctors at a hospital determined she had been hit in the face with the gun. She was treated and released.
