Governor Brownback responds to Wichita shooting at KDOR office

Press Release

WICHITA -- Governor Sam Brownback released the following statement Tuesday after Kansas Department of Revenue tax agent Courtney Holloway suffered multiple gunshot wounds at the Wichita Twin Lakes Kansas Department Of Revenue office after having performed an asset seizure earlier that day.

“This is a state employee who was doing his job and enforcing the law. I ask everyone to join Mary and I in praying for Courtney and his family,” Governor Brownback said. “I’m thankful for Courtney’s work and thankful for the police officers who apprehended the suspect.”

The tax office at Twin Lakes where the shooting took place will be closed the rest of the week. The Twin Lakes Driver’s License office adjacent to the tax office will not be open on Wednesday but will reopen for normal operations on Thursday. 

“This is a shocking event for our KDOR family, and we ask for everyone’s prayers and understanding as we support our employees and get them the help they need to process this event,” said Revenue Secretary Sam Williams.

Counseling resources are being provided for KDOR employees.
