WSUPD assist WPD with stand-off

On July 25, WSUPD officers aided the WPD during a stand-off in North Woodrow following a double homicide in a residential home, according to a KWCH report.

Wichita residents Vanessa Crawford and Donald Eckert were found dead in their home Monday morning by a woman dropping off her child at the home’s daycare. Shortly after, 62-year-old Charles Fred Crawford initiated a stand-off with responding officers after he was observed with a firearm while making suicidal statements.

Crisis negotiators, SWAT officers and responding police and patrol officers were able to peacefully resolve the situation and take Crawford into custody, where he currently faces two counts of first-degree murder.
