Man Crashes Stolen Truck Into Church in Kansas Then Stabs Two People, Killing One

Police say that a man in Wichita, Kansas, crashed a stolen pickup truck into a church on Saturday, and then went into a nearby house where he stabbed two people.

The 36-year-old suspect, who has not been identified, allegedly crashed the vehicle into the Iglesia De Cristo church, reported local station KSNW, citing police.

One of the people who was stabbed died while the other was taken to a hospital in critical condition, police said, according to KSNW.

Police don’t yet know if there was a motive behind the attack and are still investigating the incident.

Wichita Police Chief Gordon Ramsay said that the truck had keys in it, and its owner was doing yard work when it was stolen.

“So as we were searching for that, we then received information of a crash at the church behind me, and then shortly after a stabbing in the 600 block of south Green,” Ramsay said, according to KSNW.

The suspect of the crimes was out on parole for six other offenses, he said, adding, “This continues that pattern that we see of parolees committing crime in the city.”
