July 22nd Overnight Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up


Back to another pretty quiet overnight in Douglas County after the Thursday morning armed robbery. The suspect from that robbery remains at large. He is described as a black man, standing 5' 6", weighing 150lbs. At the time of the robbery he was wearing all black clothing and had a white shirt covering his face. He was armed with a black handgun.

As for last night, Police did not have a whole lot of activity to respond on outside of the fairly routine. Several noise complaints, disturbances and car stops.

LDCFM responded on, what seemed like quite a few medical related calls overnight. None of the activity, that I heard, involved any serious injuries.

Again, the activity blogged here is only a sampling of some of the things that Douglas County Law Enforcement and Lawrence-Douglas County Fire & Medical respond on. To see a complete list of Lawrence Police activity, the department has that available on their website along with several easy to use maps that show approximate locations for Police activity.

Anybody know what is going on with the helicopter hovering over far west Lawrence? Are they trying to Lifeflight somebody out?

There was a propane tank leaking near the Robinson Gymnasium. Belongs to the roofing contractor that is working on the building. Robinson Gym building was evacuated for a time. The helicopter was a news chopper from Kansas City.
