According to reports, police received a call around 2:40 p.m. EDT regarding a shooting at the department's office in the Twin Lakes Shopping Center located at 21st Street and Amidon.

Governor Sam Brownback confirmed Department of Revenue tax agent Cortney Holloway was shot multiple times Tuesday afternoon at an office after having performed an asset seizure earlier in the day. He then left in a pickup truck.

Dave Hiegel, who said he has known Wirths for 22 years, said his friend did dirt moving work with his father, installed windows for a few years and most recently had done parking lot and pavement sealing, The Wichita Eagle reported.

"I'm just trying to rationalize how a judge, how an attorney can think that it is ok for an individual to willingly target and attempt to murder another individual and have the opportunity to be free", said Moniqueka Holloway. "That would be hard to swallow".
