Arrest Made in Shooting, IPD Searches for Gun


The Independence Police Department is looking for a gun that was used during a shooting on Halloween.


36-year-old Lyle Gillen was arrested for the shooting shortly after it was reported. The shooting occurred in the 200 block of West Chestnut and Gillen was arrested in the 900 block of North 10th. IPD could not locate the gun Sunday night and after assistance from multiple law enforcement agencies were unable to locate it on Monday.


Chief Jerry Harrison says after hours of searching and exhausting all available resources they are now asking for the public's help. The gun is a small-caliber handgun that is grey with black handgrips. It is believed to be abandoned between the alley west of 8th and Locust and the 900 block of N. 10th. If you locate the weapon call IPD at 911 or 620-332-1700 but do not touch it.
