RILEY COUNTY —Law enforcement authorities investigating the Oct. 10 drive by shooting on Fort Riley Blvd. have upgraded charges against the suspect 37-year-old Torrey Lindsey of Manhattan.

Lindsay is now accused of attempted first-degree murder, aggravated assault and criminal discharge of a weapon into an occupied vehicle. He remains confined in the Riley County Jail on a $750,000 bond.

Just after 10:00 a.m. Sunday, police responded to a 911 call of shots fired from one car to another while both were traveling eastbound on Fort Riley Blvd. near the Geary-Riley County Line, according to police spokesperson Aaron Wintermote.

Officers made contact with the two cars involved near the intersection of Miller Pkwy. and Fort Riley Blvd in Manhattan. They found a 33-year-old female victim, driving one of the cars, suffering from minor glass shrapnel injuries to the face. The victim was transported from the scene to Via Christi and released after treatment.

Lindsay who had been driving the second car involved, allegedly shot from his car into the victim’s car. Police originally arrested him on a requested charge of attempted second-degree murder.
