Evening Shooting Results in the Death of One Individual

This evening, shortly before 6:00pm, officers were dispatched to an apartment complex near 13th and Haskell Avenue in regards to a shooting.  Officers arrived and determined a male subject, a 26 year old Lawrence resident, was transported by family members to Lawrence Memorial Hospital.  He later died of an apparent gunshot.  Officers at the scene advised other on-duty officers of description of the other individual involved in the dispute and a vehicle that individual may be traveling in.  Minutes later a Douglas County Sheriff's deputy observed the vehicle and stopped it in the East Hills Business Park.  An individual was detained without incident and transported to the Law Enforcement Center for an interview.

At this time the identity of the victim is not being released.  The identity of the other individual is also not being released, however those booked into the Douglas County Jail can be seen on the Douglas County Sheriff's Office website at  Additional information regarding the investigation will be provided in a subsequent press release by 9:00am tomorrow
