A man is hospitalized following an officer-involved shooting over the weekend in southwest Kansas.
According to the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, on Saturday Hugoton police officers were dispatched to the report of a domestic disturbance. When police arrived, they tried to stop a man who was leaving but he sped away. Officers pursued, but called off the chase because they said it was creating a dangerous situation.
The suspect then returned to the original scene two additional times, again leading officers on chases. During the third and final call, it was reported that Baeza attempted to hit an officer with his car.
Officers chased the man to an area about two miles southwest of Moscow, Kansas on US-56 where he stopped. The KBI said the man was shot at that location, but no other information regarding the events surrounding the shooting is being released at this time.
Homero D. Baeza, 36, was airlifted to an area hospital where he’s listed in stable condition. The KBI is leading the investigation with the assistance of the Stevens County Sheriff’s Office.
