WICHITA, Kan. (May 31) - Dr. George Tiller, one of the nation's few providers of late-term abortions despite decades of protests and attacks, was shot and killed Sunday in a church where he was serving as an usher.
The gunman fled, but a 51-year-old suspect was detained some 170 miles away in suburban Kansas City three hours after the shooting, Wichita Deputy Police Chief Tom Stolz said.
Charity and I lived in Altoona, Kansas for over 16 years, (1980-1996) and often went to Wichita. So we often heard of Tiller and his office. Wichita was about 100 miles from our house.
