Officer-Involved Shooting

John AndersonMay 28, 2022

A man wanted in Barton County on charges of rape and aggravated criminal sodomy was killed in an officer-involved shooting in rural Saline County late Friday night. According to the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, preliminary information indicates that at approximately 10:20 p.m. on Friday, two deputies with the Saline County Sheriff’s Office traveled to the residence of 2708 S. Holmes Road in rural Saline County, to serve an arrest warrant to 42-year-old Dustin Vance of Hoisington. As deputies approached the residence, they were met by Vance who exited the house onto the porch. Vance was armed with a holstered handgun. Vance did not comply with several verbal commands given by the deputies and drew his handgun. At around 10:20 p.m., one deputy fired multiple times and struck Vance. EMS declared Vance deceased at the residence. At the time of the shooting, two other subjects were inside the home. A 41-year-old woman from Salina was in close proximity to the porch and was struck by one of the rounds fired. Deputies rendered aid to her, and EMS transported her to Salina Regional Health Center. She is currently in stable condition and is expected to recover from her injuries. The KBI will conduct a thorough and independent investigation into this shooting. Once the investigation has concluded, the findings will be turned over to the Saline County Attorney for review
