Authorities identify second man killed near Longton


LONGTON, Kan. (AP) — Authorities have identified the second victim of a shooting in Elk County last week. The Kansas Bureau of Investigation and Elk County Sheriff’s office said in a news release Tuesday that 57-year-old Robert Stricker was shot and killed on Dec. 23 outside a home in Longton. The second victim was previously identified as 55-year-old Dewayne L. Smith. Both men were from Longton. The KBI said investigators believe the men were killed while attending an outdoor gathering by 41-year-old Lyle Miller, who died from an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound at a home near the shooting site. Authorities have not said what prompted the shootings.
