HUTCHINSON, Kansas — A shooting Monday night left one man with fatal gunshot wounds.
It happened around 11:30 p.m. in the 400 block of East 8th Street outside the Farmers Insurance Building.
A man, identified as Sem Adrien of Evanston, Illinois, was found critically wounded.
He was taken to the hospital where he later died from his injuries.
A woman, who heard the shot, thought they were fire crackers.
“I saw the kid laying there, and they were starting work on him. I asked one of the girls what happened did he get shot and she said yea and I said that’s what I heard,” said Joyce Cedino.
The case has been handed over to the Reno County District Attorney’s Office.
Kansas State Fair General Manager Denny Stoecklein says Adrien helped set up the grandstand stage last week and his employment with the fair ended Friday.
Police records show that in the last month, Adrien has had four run-ins with Hutchinson police, including allegations of trespassing and public intoxication.
