December 17th Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire Medical wrap up

For those who follow Operation 100 News on Twitter, you are probably already aware of this but, for everyone else. I recently changed my coverage hours to begin at midnight and end at 5 a.m.. More information on this change can be found here.

Law Enforcement in Douglas County was on high alert following two Topeka Police Officers being shot and killed in the line of duty last night. The suspect was involved in a six hour standoff with local, state and federal law enforcement in Topeka. The standoff came to an end after tactical teams fired tear gas into the structure and shots were exchanged. Medics transported the suspect away from the scene in very critical condition. More on this story can be found here from the Lawrence Journal-World.

Around 3 a.m., a Johnson County Sheriff's Deputy spotted a sport utility vehicle at a high rate of speed, driving into oncoming traffic on Kansas Highway 10. The SUV was first seen around De Soto, traveling westbound in the eastbound lanes. The Deputy tailed the vehicle from the correct side of the highway and reported speeds near 100 miles per hour. Douglas County Deputies attempted to throw spike strips in front of the suspects vehicle. The driver managed to avoid the spike strips and came to a stop on his own near milepost 10. Deputies from both agencies conducted a felony car stop and took the driver into custody. Eudora Township Fire and LDCFM medics were called to the scene for some minor lacerations that the subject had sustained in his arrest. Eudora Township canceled the medic unit after learning that the suspect was refusing treatment. The suspect was taken into custody by Johnson County Deputies.

Lawrence Officers responded on a report of suspicious activity in the 1000 block of W. 24th Street shortly after 4 a.m.. Officers contacted a woman in the area. That woman was eventually taken into custody for an outstanding warrant. She faces additional charges for Possession of Marijuana and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

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.

December 1st Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire Medical wrap up

Lawrence Police responded on four trespassing complaints this morning. Officers also handled three disturbances. None of the activity was said to involve weapons however, one of the disturbances involved several subject "throwing produce" at each other inside a Hy-Vee store. No arrests were reported following any of this activity.

At 4:46 a.m., Police and Fire Medical crews were called to the 2300 block of W. 26th Street after a caller reported seeing a "flickering" in the hallway of her apartment building. Police arrived quickly and reported there was nothing visible from the exterior of the building. After making contact with the caller, Police determined that the "flickering" was nothing more than a light fixture in the hallway. Fire crews confirmed there was not a fire in the building.

Around 6 a.m., Police and Fire Medical crews were called to 1345 Vermont Street on reports of a structure fire. The caller reported smoke coming from a vacant apartment on the second floor of the building. Police arrived and reported seeing flames visible on the north side of the building. Officers attempted to make access to the apartment where the smoke was coming from but, were prevented from doing so due to the smoke conditions. Those officers were able to evacuate everyone from neighboring apartments. Firefighters arrived to report heavy smoke from a second floor window. A second alarm response was ordered for extra manpower at the scene. Crews reported the fire to be knocked down within about 10 minutes. The incident was declared to be under control at 6:20. No injuries were reported.
