At about 2:00 a.m. Sunday, a 45-year-old man came to the Police Patrol North sub-station near 21st & Hillside in Wichita, telling officers there was a man injured just a couple blocks away in the 2300 block of N. Chautauqua.

At that house police located the victim, 46-year-old Desmond Winesberry, dead with trauma to his body. Investigators believe there was a physical and verbal argument, leading to a disturbance, and there could be some drugs involved with this incident.

Investigators are looking for four people believed to be in the house at the time.

There have now been 37 murder cases in 34 weeks this year in Wichita; more than 80% of those homicide cases have been solved.
