MCPHERSON, Kansas (AP) – The Kansas Bureau of Investigation has completed its report into the death of a 56-year-old Kanopolis man shot by McPherson police.

The KBI was looking into the June 4 death of Timothy Lloyd, who was unarmed when police say he charged at an officer.

Authorities said when officers were called to investigate a hit-and-run accident in the central Kansas community, the suspect vehicle was gone. Officers eventually found Lloyd. Police say he charged at one officer, who fired several shots. Lloyd was pronounced dead at a McPherson hospital.

The KBI’s report has been sent to McPherson County Attorney David Page, who says he’s waiting for more evidence before making a decision on the case.
