Etheridge was first shot in the back with the rifle. Sheriff Hinshaw says the rifle malfunctioned, so Lyons grabbed Etheridge's Glock and shot him again. Shot twice - once with rifle, once with Glock. Sheriff says it appears Etheridge did everything right. He was wearing body armor - but the bullet penetrated it.
Hinshaw says Etheridge could talk when EMS took him to the hospital, but their main focus was to keep him alive, not discuss what happened.
Later in the day, tear gas shot into house where Lyons was holed up twice -- but Lyons was in the back the entire time. ATF and KHP rode through a field in a McConnell Humvee. Someone saw a leg in the field. Got down off Humvee, and suspect jumped up, shot at men with Glock, and ran.
A foot pursuit followed and Lyons fired at officers again. That's when officers fired back, hitting Lyons several times.
Hinshaw says authorities don't know if Lyons had a vendatta and they may never know why he shot at Etheridge.
Lyons had served his time and was not on supervised parole anymore. The parole system can flag individuals, but Lyons was not flagged.
Most interviews in the investigation are complete and autopsies are planned for today. Forensics investigators are still processing the scene.
