Ottawa man in shooting, suicide is identified
The man suspected of shooting a Eudora man and then killing himself Saturday night has been identified as Eric Dan Stone, a 29-year-old firefighter from Ottawa.

Stone was found dead in the driveway of the home, from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
A sheriff's spokesman said the man shot a 34-year-old Eudora man in the back, before killing himself.
