Lawrence police are looking for a black male spotted brandishing a shotgun near the HyVee, 3504 Clinton Parkway, Thursday around noon.

Lawrence police work outside HyVee, 3504 Clinton Parkway, after witnesses reported a man with a shotgun in the area.

Lawrence police work outside HyVee, 3504 Clinton Parkway, after witnesses reported a man with a shotgun in the area.

Witnesses reported seeing two men engaged in a disturbance in the parking lot on the east side of the store, and one of them had a shotgun, said Lawrence Police Sgt. Trent McKinley.

Police believe the suspect fled in a vehicle. However, police have yet to locate the other man involved.

A witness who asked not to be named said he was driving west on Clinton Parkway toward Kasold Drive when he saw two men on the northwest corner of Clinton Parkway. He said one man drew a shotgun from a black bag and pointed it at the other man.

"He just stood there," the witness said of the man at whom the gun was pointed. "That's all I saw because I was turning. As soon as I saw him, I took off real fast."

McKinley said police are checking any surveillance cameras in the area, and they hope to release a better suspect and vehicle description.

McKinley is also asking any witnesses, who may have fled during the incident, to contact police at 830-7430

Scene in parking lot. Two guys standing by their cars talking about hunting. One guy says to the other "yeah man, I just got a new winchest pump"! Other guy, " Dude, let me check it out" First guy, "Okay, here it is man, check it out". Car drives by with weak kneed liberal behind wheel. " OMG... I gotta call the cop's there was a black guy holding a gun" OMG!!!!

I'm a little more concerned why the cops went to the wrong Hy Vee -- no wonder they didn't find him.

"He just stood there," the witness said of the man at whom the gun was pointed. "That's all I saw because I was turning. As soon as I saw him, I took off real fast."

Maybe it was a Craig List sale of a shotgun in which the meeting place for the sale was a neutral place, which in this case was the store parking lot. That kind of transaction is legal, The seller had the gun in a black gun case, took it out to show the buyer. The buyer bought the gun and they both left the area. Seems logical to me. Maybe the sky is not falling after all.

Yeah, I didn't get that line of reasoning at all that Alex provided. There are only so many comments the commentariate can make about a vague story about a guy with a gun.

I have a defunct beer fridge sitting on my back stoop that I need to dispose of. Ronaldo didn't want to make a bomb out of it. Would you be interested in it? I could drop it off and deliver Season 2 of Justified.

Krichards - I have no problem with you, but you did call Alex a twerp. It is their sandbox with their rules.

Big deal. Someone saw a black guy with a shotgun. Guess what? Black people have Second Amendment rights, too. Open carry is everybody's law.

Maybe he was just asking for directions to Overland Park?

and more important, who is Walt? Surely not Uncle Walt.

Have you ever shot a spray paint can with a large caliber weapon so as to make pretty pictures? I hear it is all the rage. Maybe the dude was an artist...creating in HyVee's parking lot..?? Huh? It has been such a long time since I've been on a trade route.

What's a conservative got to do to get yanked around here? (Oh, wait. Off topic . . . )

"Alex? Shaun? Whomever has their hand on the 'Liberal Lever' " Sage

Dude, I'm not a liberal (or conservative) and I got yanked as well. Perhaps they know you keep coming back under new names after getting banned and thus, are on the Sketchy List with me.

And KRichards' post above this isn't going to last.

There is no agenda. The moderators are probably wishing the election was yesterday.

I can! I can!..Eric Holder has absolutely nothing to do with a man and a gun at HyVee....But I lost interest when I didn't see anything about a ford escort in the getaway.

Alex- You should not be the judge of what is 'off topic'. More than half the comments on this story are off topic, you are not being forthright. You also are not the judge of what in 'your view' is racially tinged. IF what you just said is true, you have missed a TON of comments made the short time I have been on your site. Your proclivities are glaring.

Alex? Shaun? Whomever has their hand on the 'Liberal Lever' of don't expose my friends in politics at the moment...? This behavior was reflected when Candy Crowley jumped in to save poor defenseless Obuma in the last debate, then later apologized with egg on her face.

Anyone care to explain why my comment was expunged? Really, the Monitors are showing their true colors, there was not a SINGLE rule violation in that post. It is a fact that AG Eric Holder let off the hook Black Panthers carrying clubs at a voter hall in Philadelphia. Is the monitor who took down my post going to deny that happened?? You people are getting ridiculous, is this an open forum or not? What code of Liberalism are you abiding by? Good grief!
