MANHATTAN (KSNT) – One person was arrested after a shooting in rural Manhattan Tuesday night.
Around 5 p.m., officers received a call of a “person injured” according to Pottawatomie Sheriff Greg Riat.
According to Riat, emergency personnel arrived at the scene near Lake Elbo Road. The male victim suffered from a gun shot wound and was able to speak with deputies before being taken by medical helicopter to a Topeka hospital.
Riat could not comment on the extent of the victim’s injuries because he did not talk directly to the victim.
Then there was a “manhunt if you will,” according to Riat for the male suspect.
Shortly before 9 p.m., Riat and other officers arrived on Cannonball Road southwest of Louisville and found the alleged shooter.
The suspect, Riat said, did not have any injuries.
