STERLING, Kan. (AP) A man suspected in the 2015 disappearance of his girlfriend shot and critically wounded a Kansas undersheriff who attempted to arrest him on a federal firearm charge, then killed his own father and shot a sheriff in the leg before killing himself during a standoff, authorities said Tuesday.
Kansas Bureau of Investigation senior special agent Steve Rosebrough identified the dead during a news conference as David Madden, a 37-year-old former Marine, and his father, 65-year-old Thomas Madden.
David Madden was indicted last week for illegal possession of an AK-47 assault rifle, federal court records show.
