Clark County deputies were on patrol near Minneola, Kansas, when they came upon a blue Toyota Tundra that was believed to be related to a double homicide that had occurred there.

The exchange of gunfire began after the deputy from Clark County drove the truck into a ditch. Malone was killed throughout the course of the confrontation. despite the fact that the investigation into the double killing is still ongoing.

During the incident, two deputies from the Ford County Sheriff’s Office were shot, and one of the cops had serious injuries that placed their life in danger and was sent to a hospital in Wichita. The agency reports that the officer is presently being treated in the intensive care unit at the hospital. According to reports, the second person was treated at a nearby hospital for some minor shrapnel injuries and then discharged.
