MCPHERSON, Kan. (AP) — McPherson police say the man who was shot and killed by an officer was a 56-year-old from Kanopolis.

The McPherson Police Department said in a statement that Timothy Ronald Lloyd “charged” at officers before being shot Wednesday afternoon.

Authorities said when officers were called to investigate a hit-and-run accident in the central Kansas community, the suspect vehicle was gone.

Officers eventually found Lloyd. Police say he charged at one officer, who fired several shots. Lloyd was pronounced dead at a McPherson hospital.

Police said the 18-year-old woman whose vehicle was struck in the hit-and-run was treated and released at a McPherson hospital.

The Kansas Bureau of Investigation is helping with the investigation.
