BAXTER SPRINGS, Kan. (KAKE) – The Kansas Bureau of Investigation says a 2-year-old girl found dead after a standoff between her father and law enforcement officers in Baxter Springs was fatally shot by a police officer.

The KBI said in a release Monday that Clesslynn Crawford died as the result of a single gunshot fired by an officer with the Joplin Police Department. 

Police responded at around 7:15 p.m. on Saturday, March 26 to an ongoing domestic disturbance at a camper trailer. When they knocked on the door, 37-year-old Eli Crawford answered and then slammed it shut, the KBI said. 

Crawford’s daughter, Clesslynn, re-opened the door and 27-year-old Taylor Shutte, the child's mother, ran outside. Crawford stepped out of the home and allegedly shot and killed Shutte. He also fired and the four responding officers.

The KBI said Crawford continued shooting at officers as they retreated. Additional law enforcement arrived from the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office and the Joplin Police Department’s SWAT team. The KBI and the Kansas Highway Patrol also responded.

Crawford is believed to have used several guns to fire over 90 rounds from the trailer at responding law enforcement officers. At approximately 9:25 p.m., a law enforcement officer fired one round into the camping trailer.

Officers approached the residence and located Crawford dead from what's believed to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. 

The KBI said it is conducting a thorough independent investigation. The findings will be turned over to the Cherokee County Attorney for review.
