July 3, 2018

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Authorities say an off-duty Wichita officer was wounded and a suspected home intruder killed in an exchange of gunfire.

KWCH-TV reports that Wichita Police Chief Gordon Ramsay says 24-year-old Christian Webb shot the officer in the leg after entering the officer’s home through an unlocked door. The officer then returned fire, hitting the Webb several times.

Webb died at a hospital. The officer was treated and released. Ramsay says the officer’s wife and children were home at the time of the shooting and are shaken up but uninjured.

Ramsay says some cars had been broken into near where the shooting happened. Ramsay says there is no connection between the suspect and officer.
