LEAVENWORTH, Kan. — A 32-year-old man shot by police in Leavenworth, Kansas earlier this year during a standoff has been sentenced.

Donald Sidney Barden, of Leavenworth, was sentenced Friday to nearly 10 years in prison for his convictions in three criminal cases.

In September, Barden, was convicted of two counts of aggravated assault of a law enforcement officer connected with an officer involved shooting on Feb. 13.

In the early morning hours of February 13, 2022, officers from both the Leavenworth and Lansing Police Departments responded to the intersection of 5th Street and Seneca Streets, in Leavenworth, after a caller reported that there was a man with a gun at that location.

When officers arrived on scene they contacted Barden, who was standing in the middle of the intersection armed with a Glock pistol.

Officers immediately took cover and began attempts to de-escalate the situation and convince Barden to put his gun on the ground. He refused to do so, and approximately one and a half hours after officers first made contact with Barden, he raised his gun and ran towards the officers, making the officers believe it was his intention to shoot them, according to court documents.

Faced with no other choice, a Leavenworth officer shot Barden several times, including in the groin, causing him to fall to the ground. Officers immediately began to render first aid to Barden, and he was taken to an area hospital.
