July 9, 2009

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.

Several people were outside to launch fireworks when the incident happened at a house in the 400 block of East 2000 Road, in a rural area northeast of Baldwin City.

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.

The Eudora man was treated and released from the hospital.
