NE Kan. authorities seeking man in fatal shooting

MAYETTA, Kan. (AP) -- State authorities are searching for a man described as a person of interest in a shooting death in northeast Kansas.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/VQ6UEk ) that an alert was issued Friday after 29-year-old Kevin Stanley was found shot to death late Thursday at a Mayetta home.

Jackson County Sheriff Tim Morse says in a statement that the man being sought is listed as a person of interest and is possibly in a dark Chevy pickup with chrome bed rails.

The Kansas Bureau of Investigation joined Jackson County authorities Friday in the investigation. A KBI spokesman says that agency is assisting at the crime scene.

Mayetta, a town of about 340 residents, is about 20 miles north of Topeka.
