Suspect sought in shooting near Pittsburg


PITTSBURG, Kan. — Authorities were attempting to locate a suspect Friday after a local man was shot Thursday evening at the Whispering Pines Mobile Home Park, according to the Crawford County Sheriff’s Office. 

Shortly after 7 p.m. Thursday, sheriff’s deputies responded to 121 Glennway St. in the Whispering Pines Mobile Home Park, located near the intersection of West Quincy and South 200th streets, just west of Pittsburg’s city limits, after receiving a report of a male subject being shot. Upon arrival deputies located the subject, later identified as 34-year-old Anthony C. Hoag of Pittsburg, in the road with gunshot injuries, according to the sheriff’s office.  

Hoag was transported to Ascension Via Christi Hospital by Crawford County EMS. A press release from the sheriff’s office did not include information about Hoag’s condition, and the sheriff’s office could not be reached for comment Friday. 

“The suspect was described as a black male, wearing shorts, no shirt, driving a silver Chevy Malibu possibly bearing Kansas tag 177 PAT,” according to the release. “Vehicle was last seen shortly after the shooting southbound from Quincy Street on US-69 Hwy.”
