K-State research associate charged in shooting of Riley County officer

The Riley County police officer who was shot Friday while responding to a domestic disturbance has been released from a hospital.

 

Sgt. Pat Tiede was shot about 12:30 p.m. Friday after responding to a report of a domestic situation in the 3700 block of Hawthorne Woods Circle.

Tiede received injuries that weren’t believed to be life-threatening. He is continuing his recovery at home.

Tiede, an 18-year veteran of the Riley County Police Department, is a member of its patrol division.

“He and his family would like to thank the community for the outpouring of support and concern that has been shown during this time,” Riley County police said in a statement. “We ask that you please respect the privacy of Sgt. Tiede and his family as they continue to heal physically and emotionally.”

Mark J. Harrison, 38, of Manhattan, was arrested shortly before 3 p.m. Friday after a standoff with police.

Riley County prosecutor Barry Wilkerson said Harrison was charged Monday with three counts of attempted capital murder. He made a brief first appearance Monday and is being held in Riley County on $6 million bond.

Harrison is a research associate in Kansas State University’s mechanical and nuclear engineering department.
