NEWS RELEASE FROM THE KBI
The Kansas Bureau of Investigation has identified the man shot yesterday in an officer involved shooting incident on I-35.
The subject has been identified as 40-year-old Dustin S. Schultz-Bergin, of Olathe. He remains hospitalized in critical condition.
The shooting occurred on Thursday afternoon. The Kansas Highway Patrol requested KBI assistance at approximately 1:45 p.m. and KBI agents and the crime scene response team responded.
KHP troopers from Troops N and ESU were attempting to locate a wanted suspect, Schultz-Bergin, when they came into contact with him at the Matfield Green Service Area on I-35. The subject fled in a black Nissan Altima heading north. A pursuit ensued, and a trooper in a separate vehicle was able to deploy stop sticks ahead of the suspect’s car. This caused the car to become disabled near mile marker 107.
Preliminary information indicates that at approximately 1:25 p.m., the armed suspect exited his vehicle and a confrontation occurred which led one of the two troopers on scene to fire shots. A K-9 was also utilized. The suspect sustained at least one gunshot wound and several puncture wounds from the K-9. No troopers were injured.
EMS responded to the scene, and the man was transported to Wesley Medical Center in Wichita.
