A Wichita woman, 18-year-old Rina Nguyen, is charged with murder for shooting and killing her boyfriend in the southeast part of Wichita.

Late Wednesday afternoon east of Oliver & Harry, police were called to a shooting in the 1500 block of S. Battin; 22-year-old Amare Holt had been shot multiple times, and he died less than an hour later.

Police says there was a verbal argument between Holt and Nguyen and she pulled out a handgun, firing at Holt as he was walking out the front door; a 17-year-old girl was also on the scene during the shooting. Amare was hit by multiple shots, and one of the bullets hit a nearby home with people inside.

There had been a domestic-violence investigation involving this couple back in December.

Nguyen was booked into jail for 1st-degree murder, and criminal discharge of a firearm.

There have been eight homicide cases in Wichita during the first six weeks of the year, including two this week.
