Shawnee police interrupt twins’ apparent birthday suicide attempt

December 14, 2011

A Shawnee police officer randomly patrolling in an area of new-home construction saved the lives of twin brothers who apparently were attempting suicide on their birthday.

Shawnee Police spokesman Capt. Dan Tennis said the officer was making rounds about 9:15 p.m. Tuesday in the area around 6100 Clear Creek Parkway when he came across an occupied car in a driveway of one of the homes under construction. Upon further investigation, he found a hose running from the car’s exhaust pipe to the inside of the car.

The officer, Tennis said, rescued the two 31-year-old men. Police later discovered it was the twin brothers’ birthday.
