LDCFM had a pretty active morning with at least five medical emergencies.

A busy morning for emergency responders in Douglas County.

At 1:30 a.m. Police were called to the 1700 block of W 24th Street on a report of two gunshots heard in the area. Police did not report locating anything out of the ordinary in the area.

Just before 3 a.m., a single Medic unit was dispatched with LPD to respond to the Massachusetts Street bridge over the Kansas river for a subject with a "Traumatic Injury." Radio traffic initially sounded as though the subject had possibly jumped from a moving vehicle onto the bridge. Later traffic indicated that the subject, only identified as a male, was walking on the bridge when he was struck by a vehicle. Then again the story changed back to the man "jumping" from a moving vehicle, following a verbal disturbance inside the moving vehicle. The victim was said to be intoxicated and sustained critical injuries in the accident. He was transported by LDCFM to Lawrence Municipal Airport where a LifeStar air-ambulance transported him to KUMC in Kansas City, Kansas. More on this accident can be found here from the Lawrence Journal-World.

At 3:53 a.m., Lawrence Police were called to an address in the 2400 block of Ousdahl Road for a report of a disturbance with weapons. Upon arrival officers reported that a subject in a red 90's model vehicle fired 4-5 gunshots at the address before fleeing in an unknown direction. It sounded as though the resident may have been familiar with the suspect. No injuries were reported and as of this report no arrests have been recorded.

The next disturbance was dispatched at 4:16 a.m.. This one was called in by a third-party who reported that her boyfriend was telling her of a disturbance in his apartment with an intoxicated male, possibly armed with a knife. Officers arrived to find that the call was delayed nearly 10 minutes and the intoxicated subject had fled from the area. Officers caught up with the alleged suspect about 15 minutes later at an address near 23rd and Iowa. Again, no injuries were reported and as of this report no arrests have been recorded.

Around 7:20 a.m., Douglas County Deputies and LDCFM were called to the Union Pacific railroad tracks near the entrance to Riverfront Park for a report of a subject on the ground between the tracks. Sheriff's Deputies reported locating the subject, about a half of a mile north of the Riverfront Park entrance. The subject was deceased upon arrival. Deputies are on scene investigating. Rail traffic has been stopped in the area. No other information was immediately available. More information, as available, can be found here from the Lawrence Journal-World.

Nothing of much significance to report this morning.

At 2:09 a.m., Lawrence Police were called to the area of the 2600 block of Winterbrook Drive on a report of a single gunshot heard in the area around the walking trail at Green Meadows Park. Dispatchers only reported receiving the one call regarding the possible gunshot. Officers checked the area and were unable to locate anything out of the ordinary in the area.

Dispatchers also received a report of a vehicle traveling westbound on the South Lawrence Trafficway that the caller said was "in excess of 100 miles per hour." The caller had lost sight of the vehicle and was only able to give very limited information about the vehicle. Officers checked and did not report any vehicles speeding as the caller had described.

Police also responded on at least two attempted burglaries. One the caller reported a subject entered the house before being scared off by the residents. Another of the burglaries, the caller reported a subject was attempting to remove the window screens. As far as I am aware there was nothing stolen from either incident and no injuries were reported.

The predicted severe weather stayed clear of Douglas County this morning. The storm which dropped a tornado on Wichita fizzled out as it moved northeast and passed between Topeka and Lawrence around 1 a.m..

Crews in Lawrence responded on a few pretty minor weather related issues; arcing power lines and branches down. There were a few scattered power outages reported by Westar Energy, nothing significant by any means. As of this report. Westar shows 10,412 customers without power. That number is mostly in Sedgwick county (Wichita) with 9,661. Only two customers currently reported to be without electricity in Douglas County.

Around 2:30 a.m. the last of the seemingly endless streak of severe thunderstorm and tornado warnings were all allowed to expire.

Activity for Lawrence Police was fairly normal for an early Sunday morning. A few noise complaints and disturbances. KUPD requested LPD to the area of the Sorority and Fraternity houses after a subject walked into a Sorority house and started taking pictures. The subject was apprehended by the residents of a Fraternity who then notified KUPD. Lawrence Police responded and the pictures were returned. It sounded as though the subject was released at the scene, it was unclear if the individual was cited for the theft.

A Eudora officer caught up with a vehicle which he reported in excess of 80 miles per hour, eastbound on K-10. After clearing that vehicle stop, emergency dispatchers informed the officer of a possible intoxicated driver with a witness following. The vehicle crossed into Johnson County before the officer could make a traffic stop. There was a Johnson County Deputy nearby and he was able to stop the vehicle with the assistance of the Eudora officer. The driver of that vehicle was found to be intoxicated and was arrested by the Johnson County Deputy.

This morning at 10 a.m. a Wind Advisory goes into effect for a large portion of the state, including Douglas County.

The vehicle that struck the person was said to have fled from the scene. Officers quickly located that vehicle in the 100 block of W 10th Street. Douglas County booking logs show that an OUI (Operating Under the Influence) arrest was made in the same area, around the same time. It was not immediately clear whether the arrest was related to the accident.

At 2:32 a.m., LDCFM was called to investigate a possible vehicle fire in the 900 block of Massachusetts. As one fire crew was responding, a second caller reported that the vehicle was not on fire but, something under it was. Fire crews arrived on scene and reported "nothing visible." Crews did not report extinguishing a fire and no injuries or damage were reported.

Police conducted five vehicle stops, responded on three disturbances, and four noise complaints.

This morning, Lawrence Fire units also were standing by on the scene of a previous fire in the 2200 block of Silicon Avenue. That call was dispatched around 12:15 a.m., so it was outside of my normal reporting hours and I do not have any further information on this fire.

April 10th Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up

Lawrence Police were called to an address in the 400 block of N Jon Doy Court at 12:37 a.m., after a report of an armed robbery. A caller reported that two suspects entered the address with a gun. The suspects took some items and allegedly fled the area southbound in a black passenger car. While officers were responding, an Emergency Dispatcher learned that the report was delayed 15 minutes from the time the incident allegedly occurred. The caller also reported that one of the suspects was known. Very few other details were given over the radio however, this morning booking reports show a subject was arrested at the same Jon Doy Court address. That subject, an 18-year-old male, was booked on charges of Falsely Reporting a Crime and Obstruction of the Legal Process.

Police also conducted a few vehicle stops and responded on a few noise complaints. None of this morning's activity resulted in any serious injuries.
