LYONS — Attempted capital murder charges have been filed against a Rice County man following an Oct. 16 shooting incident that left a police officer and a Lyons resident wounded. 

Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt announced on Wednesday that charges were filed against Adam Hrabik, 40, of Lyons in connection with the shooting of Lyons Police Officer Cory Ryan, 36, and Brian Friess, 56, a teacher and coach at Lyons High School. 

Officer Ryan was shot multiple times when responding to a 911 call from Friess, who reported being threatened with a gun.  Lyons Police Chief Justin Holliday sustained minor injuries when removing Friess from the shooting scene.

Schimdt stated that Hrabik was also charged with aggravated assault of Friess in connection with the shooting.

After spending nearly two weeks in a Wichita hospital, Officer Ryan was released Wednesday, Oct. 28 and continues to recover back home in Lyons. Chief Holliday and Friess were treated for injuries and released.

The case is being prosecuted by the Kansas Attorney General’s Office at the request of Rice County Attorney Remington Dalke.
