HESSTON, Kansas (AP) - The man who killed three people before Hesston, Kansas, police fatally shot him in February is estimated to have had more than 135 times the standard dose of methamphetamine in his system.

The Wichita Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1YasuW5 ) that Cedric L. Ford also had three times the legal limit of alcohol for driving in his system.

An autopsy shows Ford died from four gunshot wounds after the shooting spree that started along a highway and ended inside his workplace, Excel Industries.

Forensic expert Jonathan Lipman says methamphetamine tends to have a strong, psychotic impact on people who already suffer from mood disorders.

Ford had been served a protection order at work hours earlier. A woman he lived with said Ford grabbed her and put her in a chokehold earlier that month.
