    A Kansas sheriffs dept used drones, planes, and helicopters to end a one sided gun battle at a rural location on Wednesday. Drones were USD to pinpoint the location of the shooter, and 1 drone was downed by gunfire. There was a house fire involved and firefighters,as well as law enforcement we're kept at bay by gunfire. Seveal vehicles were hit. The suspect was located and after 10 hours was flushed out with tear gas and surrendered. No one was injured. Great use of UAV tech!!
