Lawrence police are investigating after a Kwik Shop employee was shot during an attempted armed robbery early Friday morning outside the store at 3440 W. Sixth St.

Officers were dispatched to the business shortly after 3:40 a.m.

The victim, according to a news release Friday from Lawrence police, was a 38-year-old man who was being treated for nonlife-threatening injuries at an area hospital.

Police are searching for two suspects who allegedly tried to rob the employee, shot him once and then fled the scene on foot. One suspect was described as a black man between 5 feet 8 inches and 5 feet 10 inches tall, wearing a red bandana over his face, a dark hooded sweatshirt and dark pants. The other suspect was described as a black man about 6 feet 2 inches tall, wearing a blue bandana on his face and a dark hooded sweatshirt and dark pants.

Police and sheriff's deputies surrounded the area and searched for the suspects with police dogs. No one was located during the search.

The Kwik Stop will remain closed until detectives complete their on-scene investigation. A store representative at the scene declined to comment Friday morning.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 785-843-TIPS.

Late Friday afternoon, no arrests had been made, Officer Drew Fennelly said.

On KBI report: Violent crime, including murder, increased in Kansas in 2016

Condemnation of two bandana wearing suspects by Liberal hoplophobes to follow.

Two key points should be raised after this bandana incident.

  1. If Larryville would ban firearms like Chicago has, this behavior would cease and desist.

  2. Eliminate conceal and carry to discontinue this type of profound complex behavior.

You forgot the third key point, Summers:

--Only a complete jackass, moron and fool would use the criminal and vicious shooting of an innocent human being as an opportunity to repeat inane and absurd talking points.

I wonder sometimes if your mother ever really loved you. Your nastiness is astonishing.

Get lost Lydia. Your commercial posts are not appropriate for this forum. LJW.....can you get this poster off this forum??

Bob, you should know by now, if you are a regular to this forum, that Summers has a long list of drivel. I am not surprised that he used this opportunity to attack "liberals" his favorite fantasy. It is part and parcel of his dismissive and stupid attacks.

Notice the viciousness of the subjects Bob and Fred.

Dear Bob,

The congenital Liberal creates the environment for people to shoot, see Chicago, Topeka, Baltimore, Detroit, Lawrence, etc etc etc, and then have the self righteous Liberal privilege to accuse others of being a complete jackass, moron and fool when they are the creators of deadly environments.

Sad thing is, you and Liberals like you, do not have the proclivity, natural ability, to understand you are the creators.

Thanks

"...--Only a complete jackass, moron and fool would use the criminal and vicious shooting of an innocent human being as an opportunity to repeat inane and absurd talking points..." The people who want to disarm law-abiding Americans do just that every chance they get.

What difference does it make where the suspects are from. How is that relevant?

Bob Forer 3 months, 1 week ago

Facts can either be relevant or irrelevant. It would be wonderful if you could articulate for all of us the importance of the suspects home town,. and why it is material to the underlying story. .

No doubt, on a late-night, spur-of-the-moment 'Vacation' to escape this Summer's oppressive 'Heat', with one from KCK and the other, an upstanding member of that notoriously glitzy cow-munity of Topeka, both simply stopping off to 'chill' with a couple of refreshing, 'borrowed' Big Gulps...

Louis, my friend who was shot by these thugs would find your racist comments above to be deplorable.

Kendall Simmons 3 months, 1 week ago

I'm so sorry for your friend, but it sounds as though he is OK.

Bob Forer 3 months, 1 week ago

He was shot less than 24 hours ago. Even if his injuries are not life threatening, I doubt anyone would be okay after being shot in a violent crime. He might be alive, but right none of us know whether his injuries will result in temporary or permanent disability. Additionally, I doubt anyone recovers from the psychological trauma of being shot in a short period of time.

Thankfully, he is alive., But I doubt he is okay.

I see the testiness of Bob Forer is reaching new heights these days. How nice.

Louis Kannen 3 months, 1 week ago

The nightmare memories of being shot, or shot at, either in combat or during criminal action NEVER go away...hope your friend can find a way to become an exception.
