Wichita Police say they have made an arrest in a shooting that killed a teenager at McAdams Park Wednesday night.

Police arrested an 18-year-old on suspicions of 2nd degree murder and outstanding warrants.

Marion Wheaton, 15, of Wichita, was shot just before 6:00 p.m. Wednesday in the 1400 block of North Ohio.

Investigators determined that Wheaton and two teenage friends walked to the area to meet with another boy and other unknown individuals to allegedly fight over an ongoing dispute.

As Wheaton and his friends walked in the area, they were approached by a vehicle.

Police said they will present the case to the Sedgwick County District Attorney’s office.
