Standoff Ends With Arrest of Suspect in Fatal March Shooting

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – Authorities have arrested a suspect in a fatal Wichita shooting after a standoff.

Wichita police Sgt. Nikki Woodrow says the man was taken into custody Thursday in the backyard of a house. The Wichita Eagle reports that he is being held on $250,000 bond. He’s been identified as a suspect in the March 3 killing of 35-year-old Brandon Walters. Police have said that Walters was shot inside his home.

The standoff began after officers received information about where a woman linked to the suspect lives. Woodrow said that as officers approached the home, the suspect was spotted leaving a detached garage. Woodrow says the suspect ran into the house when he saw the officers.

During the standoff, four children and several adults exited the house.
