SEDGWICK COUNTY — Law enforcement authorities are investigating a murder and have a teenage suspect in custody.
Just before 6p.m. Wednesday, police responded to a shooting at a home in the 1500 Block of South Battin in Wichita, according to police Lt. Jeff Gilmore.
At the scene, officers located a victim identified as 22-year-old Amare Holt with multiple gunshot wounds. EMS transported him to a local hospital where he died, according to Gilmore.
Investigators learned that 18-year-old Rina Nguyen and her boyfriend Holt were at the home and got into an argument. During the disagreement, Nguyen pulled out a handgun and fired it at Holt as he was walking out the front door of the residence.
Gunshots also struck a nearby occupied home, according to Gilmore but there were no other injuries. A 17-year-old girl also at the home was not injured, according to Gilmore.
After the shooting, Nguyen fled the residence in a vehicle but returned a short time later and was arrested on requested charges of first-degree murder and discharge of a firearm at an occupied dwelling, according to Gilmore.
