Pittsburg Kansas man arrested after domestic violence call

On August 3, 2022, at approximately 3:13 a.m., officers with the Pittsburg Police Department were dispatched to 1406 Bitner Terrace in response to a domestic incident, where a male subject had damaged property and fired a gun in the backyard. 

Officers approached the residence and encountered 39-year-old Corbin Gene Murray, of Pittsburg, sitting in the backyard. Murray had a shotgun and a rifle, in firing position in front of him, pointed in the direction of a responding officer.

Commands were given for Murray to drop the weapons and he did not comply. A second responding officer, approaching from another angle, was able to quickly approach and subdue Murray, knocking both weapons from his control. Murray was handcuffed and placed under arrest without further incident.

Investigation into this incident revealed that prior to police arrival, Murray had battered a female subject inside the residence and had caused damage to items inside the residence. It was also determined that multiple children were present inside at the time of this incident.

Murray was transported to the Crawford County Jail and was charged with the following offenses; aggravated assault of a law enforcement officer, aggravated endangering a child, domestic battery, interference with law enforcement, misdemeanor criminal damage, and possession of a firearm while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Murray is currently being held without bond.

The investigation into this incident is ongoing at this time. Anyone having information related to this incident, or other incidents, is urged to contact the Pittsburg Police Department at 620-231-1700, or at our tip line, 620-231-TIPS (8477).
