Update: The Lawrence Journal-World is reporting that William Schoonover, 58, from rural Valley Falls, sustained one gunshot wound to the left side of his chest. Schoonover was transported to Stormont-Vail Regional Health Center in Topeka by ambulance. He was in surgery Sunday afternoon.
The man who allegedly shot Schoonover, a 62-year-old from rural Valley Falls, was booked into the Jefferson County Jail on suspicion of intentional murder in the second degree. The charges could be revised.
The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office is investigating after a man was shot. First reports of the shooting were heard shortly after 10:40 a.m. this morning. The victim was reported to be near a "trailer home" in the 6100 block of 142nd Street.
According to scanner traffic, a man called 911 and reported that he had just shot a man who had attacked him. The shooting victim is reported to a male in his 50's be awake and bleeding heavily from a single gunshot wound to the chest.
A LifeStar Medical helicopter was initially dispatched to respond to transport the man to the hospital. The man was transported to Stormont-Vail in Topeka by ground ambulance and LifeStar's response was cancelled just after 11 a.m..
Deputies on scene have requested a "detective response to scene."
