Winter break and holiday vacation season is upon us and that means vacant or unoccupied homes in our community. The Riley County Police Department would like to remind the community of a few tips to help reduce your risk of becoming a victim of crime while away from your home over the next month.

At approximately 6:02 AM this morning, the Riley County Police Department received a 911 call regarding shots fired at 150 East Poyntz Ave. (The Quality Inn and Suites).  Police officers from Riley and Pottawatomie counties responded, and once on scene observed a subject discharging a firearm outside of the hotel.  As events unfolded, officers ordered the subject to cease firing and drop the weapon.  When the subject failed to do so and continued firing, officers on the scene returned fire and struck the subject multiple times.
