September 3rd Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical


After busy Saturday and Sunday mornings, I thought there might be quite a bit of activity this morning, being Labor Day. I was wrong, it was a pretty normal Monday morning.

Police conducted three vehicle stops in Lawrence, one of which resulted in an OUI related arrest just before 2 a.m.. Eudora Police also recorded an OUI related arrest shortly before 3 a.m..

Officers in Lawrence responded on two disturbances this morning. No serious injures were reported with either disturbance.

Fire/Medical was called to an address in the 2500 block of Redbud Lane for a man in his 40's who was electrocuted while trying to "fix the wiring in an electrical outlet." Medics did not report any serious injuries, the man was transported to LMH for further treatment.

Police were called to the 2400 block of Redbud Lane for a report of gunshots heard in the area. Three officers checked the area and did not report finding anything out of the ordinary.

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.

Some of the activity blogged above was reported as it was unfolding by Operation 100 News. Learn how to receive breaking news updates here.

Reads like police say gunshots are not out of the ordinary on Redbud.
