CLAY COUNTY — The Clay County Sheriff’s Office says one person is dead and another was wounded in a rural Clay County shooting incident Thursday.

Authorities say just before 1 p.m. a deputy from the Clay County Sheriff’s Office was flagged down by a motorist who told him she was taking her husband to the hospital because of a gunshot wound. Officers received information from the woman that the shooter was located at 926 Valleyview Road, just northeast of Milford Lake.

When officers arrived at the home, they found the 27-year-old shooter dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. The other shooting victim, the suspect’s father, received a non-life threatening wound to his right rib cage area. He was treated at a local hospital then transferred to the Salina hospital. Authorities have not identified the victim or the shooter as the investigation continues.
