August 26th Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up

Around 1:27 a.m., Lawrence Police and Fire/Medical were called to an address in the 1600 block of Tennessee Street on reports of a person struck by a vehicle. Police arrived on scene quickly and reported a male with critical injuries. Medics arrived on scene and almost immediately requested that dispatchers check on the availability of a LifeStar Helicopter and of the University of Kansas Medical Center to accept a critical trauma. LifeStar was unable to fly due to weather in the area, and KUMC reported they were able to accept the patient. The man was transported by ambulance to the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City, Kansas.

A driver involved in the accident was reported to be detained by Police and transported to Lawrence Memorial Hospital for a blood draw. As of this report, it is unclear if that driver has received any citations or faces any charges. There is also no update on the victim's status available. A report on the accident can be found here from the Lawrence Journal-World.

At 2:07 a.m., Police were called to the area of the East Hills Business Park on a report of a subject firing a gun from a vehicle. As officers were responding on the call, dispatchers learned that the incident occurred approximately 30 minutes before anyone had call 911 to report it. The caller only provided dispatchers with a very vague description of the vehicle involved. No injuries or damage were reported.

Fire/Medical was dispatched on a fire alarm at Ellsworth Hall on the University of Kansas campus shortly before 4:30 a.m.. Dispatchers reported receiving alarms from two separate rooms. KUPD located burnt macaroni and cheese in one of the rooms and firefighters confirmed that was the source of the alarm. Many residents were evacuated from the building while firefighters were on scene. Everyone was allowed back into the building a short time later.

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.
