WICHITA--Governor Sam Brownback released the following statement Tuesday after Kansas Department of Revenue tax agent Cortney Holloway suffered multiple gunshot wounds at the Wichita Twin Lakes KDOR 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 Cortney and his family,” Governor Brownback said. “I’m thankful for Cortney’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.
