Man Dies after Being Shot During Argument in South Wichita

Associated Press - October 27, 2016 12:58 pm

A robbery suspect is now in custody after a standoff in Wichita that ended after hours of negotiations.

Authorities say a man has been fatally shot during an argument in a strip mall parking lot.

Police Lt. Nikki Woodrow said in a statement that the shooting happened late Wednesday afternoon. The Wichita Eagle reports that witnesses told police that two men argued before the victim was shot in the chest and the right leg. He was taken to a Wichita hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Police say the suspect left in a vehicle with California tags. The vehicle was recovered later but the suspect wasn’t immediately arrested.
