Hutchinson Police say they're investigating a possible homicide, which occurred late Monday night.
Officers were called to the area of 8th and Plum around 11:30 p.m. When they arrived, they found a man who had been shot. He was transported to an area hospital where he later died.
That victim has been identified as 26-year-old Sem Adrien of Evanston, Illinois. Other details about the case have not yet been released.
Kansas State Fair General Manager Denny Stoecklien said Adrien worked on the fairgrounds helping to set up the grandstand stage. Adrien's work at the fairgrounds ended last week.
Neighbors in the area say the neighborhood has been deteriorating for the past few years, and the shooting is an example of what it has become.
Neighbor Tim Christopher says, "I'm sorry that something like that happened and caused them pain and grief, I'm also sorry for the neighborhood, that it's finally come within a hundred feet of my door."
