RICE COUNTY The Kansas Bureau of Investigation (KBI) and the Lyons Police Department identified the officer shot Friday afternoon outside of a Lyons residence.

Officer Cory Ryan, 36, of Lyons, was shot multiple times when responding to a 911 call from a citizen who reported being threatened with a gun. Ryan joined the Lyons Police Department in 2012. He is currently being treated at a Wichita hospital, where he is improving. Ryan is in critical, but stable condition, according to a media release from the KBI.

Lyons Police Chief Justin Holliday also sustained minor injuries when removing the 56-year-old Lyons man from the shooting scene. Holliday was treated at a local hospital and is now recovering at home.

The 56-year-old injured man is now in good condition, and could be released from the hospital as early as today.

Adam Hrabik, 40, was arrested related to the incident, and is being held at the Reno County Sheriff’s Office Detention Center. He has not yet been formally charged.

A fund has been set up to cover the expenses of Officer Cory Ryan and his family at the Lyons Federal Bank, 200 E. Ave. S., Lyons, KS 67554. Donations will also be taken at the First Bank-Sterling, 128 S. Broadway Ave., Sterling, KS 67579, or the Lyons Police Department 303 E. Main St., Lyons, KS 67554.


RICE COUNTY The Kansas Bureau of Investigation (KBI) responded to investigate an officer-involved shooting that critically injured a Lyons police officer.

Preliminary information indicates that officers from the Lyons Police Department received a 911 call at approximately 3:40 p.m. from a man who was being threatened with a gun, according to a media release.

When the first responding officer arrived at 1 Arrowhead Dr. in Lyons, Kan., he was shot by 40-year-old Adam Hrabik, who lived at the residence.

Two nearby citizens who saw the shooting helped coax the officer away from the scene. They then drove him to a local hospital in their private vehicle. The officer was then transported to a Wichita hospital where he is currently in critical condition.

When additional officers and deputies arrived on scene, they discovered a 56-year-old Lyons man outside who had also been shot. They removed the man from the scene. He was taken to a local hospital and then transported to a Wichita hospital. He is currently in serious condition. 

Numerous law enforcement agencies responded to Lyons to assist. Hrabik retreated into the residence and a standoff ensued. At approximately 7:10 p.m., the Kansas Highway Patrol’s Special Response Team negotiated him out of the residence, and the Hutchinson and Reno County Emergency Response Team took Hrabik into custody.

Hrabik was turned over to KBI agents for questioning. The investigation is ongoing.
