MAYJ_3,_1_997 GREAT PLAINS THE SALINA JOURNAL T CRIME T SALINA CITY COMMISSION Ongoing argument led to weekend shooting Salina honored for work O O O *"' 4 -rVT* J_1_ J Tj)*.^ « xJ-T .T^TT Shooting landed one Salinan in jail and another in hospital By SHARON MONTAGUE 'hie Salinn Journal An ongoing argument led to a Weekend shooting that left one man injured and another in jail, police said. Vince Johnson, 26, 635 Steahlin, was arrested on charges of at- T CRIME tempted second-degree murder, aggravated battery and possession of marijuana. Police said Johnson and Marcus Dickinson, 17, 305 S. Phillips, had been having an ongoing dispute for at least a month. Saturday afternoon, the two reportedly argued while in Sunset Park. At about 6:45 p.m. Saturday, Dickinson and Antwon Pierce, 17, 914 N. Seventh, were standing outside a house at 812 Morrison when a 1986 Mazda stopped in front of the house, said Lt. Mike Sweeney of the Salina Police Department. The driver reportedly fired seven rounds from a .380 semi-automatic handgun, allegedly trying to hit Dickinson. Instead, one round ricocheted off the ground and grazed Pierce's shoulder. Pierce was treated at the emergency room at Salina Regional Health Center. Police found seven shell casings and a spent slug on the ground. They couldn't find the other slugs, but Lt. Mike Sweeney said police didn't believe any of the bullets damaged property. It was determined that a window in the house had previously been broken, Sweeney said. Witnesses got a tag number for the car, Sweeney said, leading police to Johnson. He was arrested at his home shortly before 8 p.m. Saturday. Police did not find the weapon, Sweeney said. Sweeney said the passenger in Johnson's car hadn't been charged. KBI aims to correct listing of sex offenders' homes By The Associated Press MANHATTAN — A public registry of convicted sex offenders in Kansas that wrongly drew attention to an innocent couple has been rechecked. Officials found more mistakes. The same list that erroneously included Mike and Judy Lump- kins' address as one belonging to a sex offender is outdated, Riley County police say. Now it appears other innocent people might have had to endure the strange looks and hostility the Lumpkins got from neighbors who thought they were convicts. After consulting with the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, Riley County cut 14 names and addresses from the registry last week, leaving only two names. The wrong addresses got on the list because the real offenders moved without telling the proper authorities where they were going — which is against the law. The KBI uses the local list to compile the statewide registry, which was placed on the Internet. The KBI is drafting a letter to send to the addresses of the 309 registered sexual offenders in Kansas, said Charles Sexson of the KBI. The KBI letters ask the occupants to return a form declaring whether the offender has moved. The KBI will investigate any claims that offenders have moved. at Ninth and Broadway In 10-minute meeting, commissioners OK ban on fireworks possession By The Journal Staff A representative of the American Public Works Association presented the Salina City Commission with a plaque Monday for its work on the Broadway Boulevard and Ninth Street intersection project. Salina competed against cities from all over the state to win the "transportation under $2 million" division of the association's competition. Salina's project was chosen because of its degree of difficulty, positive results and landscaping, said Larry Mangan, president of the Kansas chapter of the association. Mangan, who is the city engineer in Wellington, used to live in Salina and said he was amazed at how the reconstruction of that intersection had relieved the bottle- neck there. Assistant City Engineer Shawn O'Leary also read a proclamation for National Public Works Week. May 18-24. Business on the commission agenda was light, and the meeting lasted only about 10 minutes. City staff joked afterward about the brevity of the meeting. In other business, city commissioners: • Continued a public hearing on a petition requesting the vacation of restricted access on Albert Street. • Approved a resolution authorizing the city manager to execute certificates of release from environmental liability for pollution of downtown groundwater. • Approved an ordinance repealing articles pertaining to amusement and entertainment. • Approved an ordinance pertaining to fireworks to include a ban on possession of fireworks. • Approved a change in zoning at 671 Elmore Drive.
