14 more people were injured, 10 of them critically. Fifteen ambulances and two helicopters transported the injured to Newton Medical Center, and two hospitals in Wichita, Via Christi Saint Francis Hospital and Wesley Medical Center “The shooter was actively firing on any target that came across his sights,” the sheriff said, adding that he appeared to pick his targets at “random.” The gunman was killed in a gunfight with a police officer inside the factory. The plant would be shut down during the investigation. The name of the gunman was not released. He was known as a family man with three kids. The FBI and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were on the scene, but terrorism wasn’t suspected. Kansas law doesn’t require a permit to buy long guns or handguns, which don’t have to be registered. A couple of hours later, Newton police and a SWAT team converged on a home in a trailer park in Newton. Walton said Thursday night that the gunman’s roommate was holed up inside and was refusing to engage with officers.
