A 26-year-old Evanston man was shot and killed in Hutchinson, KS, on Monday night, according to The Hutchinson News.
Hutchinson Police suspect foul play in the death of Sem Adrien, who had been in Kansas working for the Kansas State Fair and had recently had multiple run-ins with police in Evanston and Kansas, The Hutchinson News reports.
A representative of the Hutchinson, KS, police department told Patch they cannot release more information since the investigation is ongoing. He also declined to say where exactly Adrien lived, but confirmed that he was an Evanston resident.
Adrien graduated from Evanston Township High School in 2005, according to a spokesperson for the school. He later studied accounting at Southern Illinois University Carbondale, according to what appears to be his Facebook profile.
On Facebook, Adrien recently posted a link to a story about Chez Violette, a Haitian restaurant owned by his parents, Violetta and Samson. The restaurant has since transferred to new ownership, however.
“Love them to death and I’m very proud of them,” he wrote in the post. “I don’t know where I’d be without them…probably dead.”
Adrien was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol in Evanston on March 20, according to police reports. He was also charged with aggravated assault in July 2012, after he allegedly pointed a weapon at someone in a parking lot, according to police. At the time, he was living in the 1700 block of McDaniel Avenue.
Evanston Police Cmdr. Jason Parrott told Patch that police department "is not in a position to comment" on Adrien's death.
Hutchinson Police found Adrien critically wounded in the 400 block of East 8th Street in Hutchinson at 11:32 p.m. Monday, according to a press release from the police department. He was pronounced dead at Hutchinson Hospital.
