Police responded to 110 West 16th Apt. 2 just before 1:30 a.m. to a report of a home invasion. Upon their arrival they found two victims, including Paz, who was transported to Geary Community Hospital where he was later pronounced dead. A second victim received minor injuries, but he declined medical treatment. Police confirmed he is a Fort Riley soldier, but they have not yet released his name. Paz was not a member of the military.

We’re still asking for assistance from the public.” If you have information call the JCPD at 762-5912 or the Crime Stoppers line at 785-762-TIPS.
