Man arrested in connection with April shooting

A fourth defendant has been apprehended in connection with a shooting death in downtown Wichita. The man, age 18, is implicated in the late April incident. He was apprehended after a routine traffic stop on East 13th Street, according to official reports. The man will be facing criminal charges for his role in the incident.

Officers arrested the man on June 20 after he was identified as a passenger in a vehicle that had been involved in a traffic violation. Two other occupants were also arrested on unrelated charges, according to news reports.

Authorities report that the 33-year-old victim had allowed the men into his home on April 18. An altercation broke out at the residence, and several shots were fired as a result. The victim suffered several gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at Via Christi Hospital on St. Francis shortly after the incident. A 22-year-old woman was also injured during the firefight when she was struck in the leg by a bullet. A 29-year-old woman also suffered a bullet graze on her arm.

Three of the men were already apprehended in connection with the case; they range in age from 20 to 22 years old. They have been charged for the victim's death. Evidence against the most recent defendant is slated to be presented in court in early July. This is one of many cases this year in Wichita that involve multiple suspects. Officers say it is difficult to apprehend these individuals because they often change addresses.

This man would be wise to consult the services of a criminal defense attorney before legal proceedings begin in his case. These lawyers can help the man decide which plea to enter, educate him about his courtroom rights and provide information about other legal options. If you are facing similar criminal charges, your criminal defense attorney is your best ally. This person can support you from indictment to sentencing and beyond.
