Leavenworth man faces attempted capital murder charges

(KAIR)--A Leavenworth man is among two individuals that have been charged in connection with an August incident that involved the shooting of a Salina police officer.

Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidit, in a news release, said 36-year-old Adam Drew Humphrey has been charged with two counts of attempted capital murder, one count of aggravated assault of a law enforcement officer and one count of criminal possession of a firearm.

Co-defendant, 37-year-old Wichita resident Shawn Patrick Humphrey, faces six counts—including two counts of attempted capital murder, in connection with the same incident.

Schmidt said the incident took place during an attempted traffic stop near Salina. In addition to the officer who was shot and injured, one additional Salina police officer and a Saline County sheriff’s deputy were shot at, but were not hurt.

The charges were filed Friday and arrest warrants executed.

Shawn Humphrey is being held in the Saline County jail, while Adam Humphrey is being held in the Shawnee County jail.

The case is being prosecuted by the Kansas Attorney General’s Office at the request of the Saline County Attorney.
