LORRAINE, Kan. (AP) - Authorities say a man has died from a head injury that he suffered during an altercation at a central Kansas home.

The Salina Journal reports that the man has been identified as 55-year-old Kevin Wagner, of Bushton. After neighbors reported a disturbance and gunshots, Ellsworth County deputies responded Thursday night to a home in the small town of Lorraine, where they found Wagner injured. He was flown to a Wichita hospital, where he died Saturday. The Kansas Bureau of Investigation said in a news release that an autopsy found he died of “blunt force trauma.”

The KBI says it appeared that Wagner and a woman had been involved in a confrontation that became violent. The woman was present when deputies arrived. No arrests were immediately made. The investigation is ongoing.
