Wichita police are asking the public's help to solve two separate homicides in the city in recent days. Police say the first occurred Sunday afternoon, when police were called to Planeview Park after the body of a man was found there.

Police say Manuel Vargas-Avila, 42, had been shot several times, and investigators believe he had been involved in a fight with several people in the park Saturday night. 

The second homicide was reported late Monday afternoon when a man was shot to death in a driveway. That man's name has not yet been released. 

Capt. Jason Stephens says that shooting apparently happened during a fight over personal property. No arrests have been reported in either case.
