Kansas man shoots himself with deputy’s gun

Authorities in south-central Kansas say a man fatally shot himself with deputy’s gun following a standoff with police.

The incident began Sunday morning when Butler County Sheriff’s deputies were called to a home east of Wichita for a domestic violence report.

Arriving deputies say a man who lived at the home barricaded himself in the house, then in a bus parked outside before approaching deputies.

Sheriff Kelly Herzet says deputies used stun guns and other options to try to subdue the man, but the man was able to reach for one of the deputy’s guns and shoot himself in the chest.

The man, whose name has not been released, died at the scene.
