Lawrence cop shoots man to stop baseball bat attack


When Concepcion didn’t respond, Green fired two rounds from his department issued firearm. One hit Concepcion in the chest, ending the attack, according to a statement released by Blodgett’s office.

The second bullet hit a parked car. No other injuries occurred, police said.

Police also recovered the bat Concepcion was allegedly using.

It was unclear yesterday if Concepcion and the victim were in the nightclub prior to the beating. However, Romero said a report the incident would be sent to the city’s licensing board which oversees liquor licenses.
