Shortly before 4:40, Lawrence Police were called to the 200 block of Alabama after a caller reported hearing a male voice yelling for help. The caller was unsure of where the voice was coming from. Officers located a male nearby who had apparently fallen and struck his head. LDCFM responded to the scene, it was unclear if the man was transported from that scene or not.

Officers were called to an address in the 600 block of Walnut around 5:30 for two subjects reportedly burglarizing vehicles. The caller reported seeing the suspects in at least one vehicle. That caller could only describe the suspects as being dressed in dark clothing. The two suspects were last seen walking southbound on 7th Street.

Just outside of Douglas County, Tonganoxie firefighters battled a fully involved residential fire just after 5:30 a.m.. Police reported the rear of the home was fully involved with fire.

Back in Douglas County, Lawrence Fire/Medical are currently (as of 8:10 a.m.) on scene at McCollum Laboratories, 2095 Constant Avenue, on what began as a fire alarm. One fire crew responded and reported light smoke inside the one-story building. A full alarm assignment was added to the call shortly before 8 a.m.. Crews inside the building believe the smoke to be coming from a HVAC related issue. There has not been any confirmation of a working fire at this time. A Haz-Mat crew is also standing by at the scene as a precaution. KUPD has blocked several streets in the area, which are blocked by LDCFM vehicles and apparatus. It did not sound like anyone was inside the building at the time of the initial fire alarm.
