    There is very little known about the Hays, Kansas police officer who shot and killed a special needs man on Thursday during a traffic stop. Ellis County Attorney Thomas Drees is not saying much in regards to the shooting.

    Drees said the 36-year-old was pulled over for an unspecified violation. The officer who pulled him over said the suspect was not following the orders the officer was giving him.

    The officer called for backup. Once backup arrived, Drees said the suspect drove away. A one and a half mile chase ensued, which ended at 2300 block of Timber Drive.

    The suspect got out of his car and was said to refuse to follow the officer’s directions. At roughly 2:40 pm, the officer fired one shot, which killed the man. There were no details given as to what happened to cause the officer to shoot.

    As it turns out, the suspect that was shot and killed is a special needs man. His family said the man lived in an independent living center.

    KSN spoke to the family who said he had very little verbal skills. At this time neither the victim or the officer’s name is being released.

    When Drees was asked if the officer was on leave, he responded with no comment. When asked about the man being special needs, Drees again responded with no comment.

    The special needs man that was killed by the Hays officer is said to have been unarmed. Drees has chosen to wrap the shooting in a cloak of secrecy.
