A 34-year-old man from Colorado, who had only been working here for about four days, was shot and killed in a car south of downtown Wichita.

Late Sunday night, the man was found dead of a gunshot wound near the Countryside Inn, south of Broadway & Kellogg.  Investigators believe this was not a random event...

With the help of video evidence, police located a 40-year-old suspect north of the motel; that male suspect was arrested. Neither the suspect nor the victim were staying a the motel.

This is the second murder at this motel in just more than two weeks. The suspect in this case was hospitalized with a medical condition, and detectives are still speaking with multiple people who were in the area to find out what happened.

This is Wichita's 33rd criminal homicide case of the year, and the ninth in the past 23 days.
