The man who killed a Kansas City, Kan., police detective last year was sentenced Thursday for crimes committed in Leavenworth County the same day.
Ayers, 30, fatally shot the detective on May 19, 2016, near the Kansas Speedway.
He then embarked on a spree of other crimes that included entering a home in Basehor in Leavenworth County and stealing a man’s car at gunpoint.
Never miss a local story.
Later that day, Ayers was shot by a Kansas City police officer after he shot and tried to carjack another motorist.
