The condition of an undersheriff who was shot when he tried to stop a man on a federal firearm charge is expected to recover.

The Kansas Bureau of Investigation and Rice County Sheriff's office said Wednesday the condition of Rice County Undersheriff Chad Murphy, 48, has improved from critical to serious.

Murphy was shot Monday by David Madden, 37, near Sterling. Authorities say Madden then shot and wounded Sheriff Bryant Evans and killed his father before killing himself during a standoff.

Madden was under investigation in the disappearance of Megan Renee Foglesong, 22, of Oneida, Illinois, who was last seen in Rice County in 2015.

The KBI said in a news release Wednesday that investigation continues but no new leads or information have emerged from this week's shooting.
