Two Dead In Parking Lot Shootout

Two Lawrence men are dead following a shoot-out in a grocery store parking lot.

According to the Lawrence Police Department, the initial interaction between the occupants of a pickup truck and the lone occupant of an SUV began a few blocks away from the scene of the shooting.

As the vehicles continued down the road, the verbal confrontation continued.

The two vehicles pulled into the grocery store parking lot, where police say the two men got out of their vehicles and exchanged gunfire.

Sutton was declared dead at the scene, while Amick died later at a hospital.

Police say the two did not previously know one another.
