The Great Bend Police Department is still seeking a man who wielded a gun during a disturbance with his ex-girlfriend Thursday night, Police Chief Cliff Couch said.
According to Couch, officers were dispatched to the 5900 block of Eisenhower Court at 8:30 p.m. When the officers arrived on the scene, they made contact with a 21-year-old female who advised that her ex-boyfriend, Oliver Guyton, 21, had come to the house and argued with her about their relationship.
At some point, officers were told he pulled out a handgun and threatened to shoot himself, Couch said. Then he fired off a round into the ceiling of the victim’s apartment.
Officers also found a hole in one of the interior doors of the house where Guyton allegedly punched the door.
“Officers searched for Guyton throughout the night, but have thus far been unable to locate him,” Couch said. “Anyone with information about Guyton’s whereabouts is asked to contact the Great Bend Police Department at 620-793-4120 or Crimestoppers at 620-792-1300.”
