Hesston Police Chief Heralded As A Hero

KSCB News - February 26, 2016 3:13 pm

The police chief in Hesston, Kansas, is being credited with chasing and fatally shooting a man suspected of killing three people and wounding 15 others during a shooting rampage at a local factory.

Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback said Friday that investigators believe Hesston Police Chief Doug Schroeder shot the suspected gunman, Cedric Ford, and likely stopped him from harming more people at the Excel Industries plant on Thursday.

Investigators say 200 to 300 people were in the factory at the time.

The governor says Schroeder "seized the situation," adding: "God bless him for doing it."

Harvey County Sheriff T. Walton didn’t identify Schroeder during a news conference after the shooting, but said the officer who stopped the gunman was a "tremendous hero" because the "shooter wasn’t done by any means."
