WICHITA, Kan. (KNSS) - Wichita's 11th homicide of 2017 occured Thursday night, and police don't have much in the way of evidence to work with in solving the crime.

Lt. Todd Ojile said officers were called to an apartment complex parking lot at about 11:00 pm. He said investigators determined the man was standing in the parking lot and had a brief contact with the occupants of a car that pulled up to him.

One of the occupants shot the man one time, killing him. The car then fled the scene. The victim was declared dead at the scene.

The victim is identified as 22 year old Brandon Nelson. Police have interviewed one possible witness, but need more information, so they are asking that anyone who may have information on the attack to call 911, the Wichita Police Detectives Unit at 268-4404, or Crimestoppers at 267-2111.
