Slain Kansas Detective’s Handcuffs to Be Used on Suspect
Colleagues of a slain Kansas police detective say the late officer's handcuffs will be used on the man charged in the killing when the suspect is released from the hospital.
Kansas City, Kansas, Police Chief Terry Zeigler described the plan in a tweet that says "words cannot express what this means to our department."
The Kansas City Star reports that it's not yet clear when 28-year-old Curtis Ayers will be released from the hospital.
Ayers is accused of fatally shooting Kansas City, Kansas, police Detective Brad Lancaster. Ayers has been hospitalized since being shot by police hours later in Kansas City, Missouri, during his May 9 arrest.
