Altercation in De Soto bar leads to felony car stop on K-10

The westbound lanes of K-10 were shutdown briefly Sunday night during a felony car stop Sunday evening.

According to Lieutenant Brian Clark of the Johnson County Sheriff's Office, the incident began when a fight broke out at a bar in De Soto. Patrons inside the establishment reported seeing a gun drawn by someone involved in the fight. A suspect vehicle was then seen leaving the area.

Clark said the vehicle was stopped near the Douglas County line on K-10 and because the suspect was believed to be armed, a felony car stop was made.

No weapons were found inside the vehicle and Clark said no arrests have been made.

No one reported being a victim in the incident.

One dies, another injured at accident on K-10 by Brenna Hawley

One person was killed and another person was injured in an accident on Kansas Highway 10 in far western Johnson County about 10:30 Monday night, the Kansas Highway Patrol said.

Dora Henning, a 76-year-old De Soto woman, was driving her Buick LeSabre eastbound in the westbound lanes of K-10 when she collided with 41-year-old Refujio Gomez-Ruiz, of Kansas City. Henning had been driving the wrong way for several miles when she came over a hill and struck Gomez-Ruiz's Ford Windstar head-on. Henning died at the scene, while Gomez-Ruiz was transported to a Kansas City-area hospital with injuries from the accident. His condition was not available early Tuesday morning.

The accident happened just minutes after another accident in eastern Douglas County, near Eudora, where a car was run off the road by a wrong way driver

The driver only suffered minor injuries and the Johnson and Douglas county officials were investigating whether Henning was the wrong way driver in that incident as well. Additional information on the Douglas County accident was not available Monday night.

Portions of westbound K-10 were shut down from De Soto to Eudora for several hours as crews investigated the two accident scenes.
