The county’s top prosecutor thinks an investigation of an officer involved shooting in Leavenworth is close to wrapping up.

The Kansas Bureau of Investigation has been investigating a July 11 shooting that resulted in the death of Antonio Garcia Jr.

Garcia, 47, was shot by a Leavenworth police officer.

According to the KBI, the officer was sent to the location on Rose Street to investigate an alleged stolen vehicle.

County Attorney Todd Thompson has said there also was an alleged domestic dispute at that location.

After the officer made contact with Garcia, an altercation ensued. The officer fired at Garcia, according to information released by the KBI after the shooting.

Garcia was pronounced dead at the scene.

Thompson believes the KBI is close to completing the investigation.

“There’s a few things that I want them to still do,” Thompson.

Thompson’s office will be reviewing the case.

Garcia’s wife, Heather, is facing a misdemeanor charge of interfering with law enforcement for allegedly tampering with evidence after the shooting.

She is accused of attempting to hide an opened pocket knife.

Authorities believe the knife had been in the possession of her husband, according to a probable cause affidavit filed in the case.

Heather Garcia is next scheduled to be in court Oct. 25.
