SALINA, Kan. (AP) - Salina police say a man who shot himself at a house intended to kill his estranged wife.

Capt. Mike Sweeney says 38-year-old Dan Fisk broke into his wife’s home on Friday and shot at her and a neighbor who came to help before fatally shooting himself.

Sweeney said Monday it was clear Fisk intended to kill his wife. He said she was alert after undergoing surgery but police hadn’t yet talked to her.

A neighbor, 32-year-old Jerry Alkire, was shot in the thigh and stomach when he came to help the woman, whose name was not released.

The Salina Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1Ph1Q7V ) the woman cared for three children and her own three children at the house. They were taken to safety by another man who heard the shots.
